Captains of Basketball Report
On Friday, Waverley’s 1st V Basketball had a tough matchup against Trinity Grammar School, coming short with the final score, 72-94. The game was back and forth right from the tip-off, with Trinity coming into the second quarter up by a small margin of points. The 1st V was able to fight back and have a glimpse of victory by the end of the first half, with James Dyson-Merwe leading the team with his scoring.
The second half was led by Trinity, with their defence stopping Waverley from scoring. With the last quarter coming down, Waverley was down and was able to make a quick run with the help of Flynn Busteed and Angus Peshos’s shooting to bring Trinity’s lead down. Unfortunately, it was too late, with Trinity having very great players, the 1st V ended up losing in the end.
Although it wasn’t the way Waverley wanted to end the year, they will come back stronger than ever, next year.
At Waverley, the 2nd V faced off against Trinity to try to secure a 4-1 record for the first half of the season. With a huge amount of effort and grit, they were able to overcome Trinity with the end score, 51-43. The first quarter was a slow one with Trinity playing along with them in a very close game.
After the break, the dynamic duo of Giles Strachan and Hudson Hatchet were able to pull the team up with their defensive presence to take the lead by the end of the first half.
After that, there was no stopping them, as they were able to build a 10-point lead with the help of Rory Donellan’s spectacular performance.
With the win against Trinity, the 2nd V is now sitting on top of the CAS leaderboard, winning four out of five games, hoping to secure the championship next year.
The Waverley 10As already had a lot of momentum coming from being victorious in their previous games to have an undefeated season so far.
Waverley initiated the game very passionately, playing strong on both offence and defence with players such as Jonte Garvey and Nico Palacio playing very well, getting some early scores.
The game was very entertaining to watch, particularly to see such great basketball and talent shown by such a young team. They finished the game with another victory, the final score 34 – 23, and a great way to end the season.
The Waverley 9As played a very strong Trinity team that was an intense, back-and-forth game with all players playing hard on every single play, which gave them momentum going into the second half. Going into the second half Waverley continued to play hard, but Trinity was playing very well and got the win, 26-43.
The 8As played a very good game against Trinity and were playing hard from the first whistle. They continued to play hard throughout the whole game and got a lead going into the second half. They continued to play hard and got a very good win, 50-44.
Congratulations to all the teams with each of them putting all their effort into these games. Good luck to all teams as they head off into the next half of the CAS season.
