Kennedy Senior Girls Basketball team wins SSWA Basketball Championship 2017

July 20th, 2017

Throughout Semester One, our senior girls Basketball team have represented the College playing 11 games against a range of schools across Perth in the WA School Sports Championship. In a historic achievement, the girls were undefeated in the regular season earning them a place in the grand final held during the final week of Term 2.

It was a daunting prospect to be facing Willetton SHS - winners of the championship 18 times in the past 21 years. The girls were excited for the challenge and played fantastically on the day emerging victors 59 to 44.

Team Captains Rebecca Thomson and Hayley Mant accepted the Championship shield from Mr. Wood at this week’s Assembly. Courtney Green (MVP) and Amy Jacobs (Coaches Award) also received their awards from Mr Wood.

These achievements have been possible by the ongoing support of the following people: Mr Ashby and his team for building an excellent facility to train and play our games in; Mr Andy Stewart from Coaching Hoops, for his continuing work with the Basketball programs; and the girls for their ongoing efforts and commitment representing the College with excellence.
