The Firsts Basketball team recently competed in the Basketball Australia National Schools Championships in Canberra, taking out the College’s first Gold Medal in the U17 Competition.
Competing against the strongest basketball schools in the Country, the Scots Boys defeated Sydney High, St James (Victoria) and Westfield Sports High in the Pool Rounds. Moving into the quarter final, Scots defeated Newington College and a very tall and athletic Rowville Secondary (Victoria) in the semi final. Scots played a very disciplined game against St Dominic’s from Penrith, taking home the Gold Medal.
The team leaves for Canada in late December, to participate in the prestigious Bedford Road Invitational Tournament (BRIT), which the College won in 2012.
