Day 2 -
Another amazing day of sport and the students have made the staff so proud!
The girls basketball team lost their first games but then won their next two games against NISC and BVIS. However due to a point differential they were harshly eliminated into the 5th 6th place play off that they won comfortably. That slightly overshadows the days play with perhaps the most exciting game of the day - when 2 - 0 down with 38 seconds to play, Mia cooly slots home a basket to take it to overtime and then scored again to beat the eventual runners up. It was a hard pill to swallow but shows how good our girls were against much bigger opposition and on another day would surely have resulted in a top 3 trophy!
The boys made it just as exciting. Losing their first games but winning the next two - be it very very tightly - meant we were in the semi finals. A very strong St Andrews team produced some amazing base running and fielding to win that game. The 3rd place game went to the wire... literally - the last ball of the game BSY needed to avoid a home run! They did it and have walked away with 3rd place in the boys tee ball
The three objectives prior to the trip were
1. Have fun.
2. Learn from the experience.
3. Win a trophy
Having spoken to the children I certainly think we have achieved all 3 objectives and the students are keen to get back to BSY practice some more and come back even stronger next year.
It has certainly been evident for the staff how much progress in term of physical development as well as maturity has been achieved.
Thanks again for your continued support - it has been an absolute pleasure having the 18 wonderful students.
