Last Friday Terang College had 16 year 5 & 6 students (1 boys team & 1 girls team) participate in the Hoop Time All Stars competition at the Terang Stadium.Both teams started the day off strongly with convincing wins over their opponents.
The boys finished the day with 2 wins and 2 losses, 1 of the losses was only by 1 point, the opposition scoring a goal with only 6 seconds left in the game. The boys played in the Consolation final to decide who finished in 3rd and 4th place. The boys played well but Timboon walked away winners by 3 points and the Terang boys finished 4th for the day.
After a big win in their first game the girls lost their second game, playing against a very strong St Pats team. This did not discourage the girls with them bouncing back to victory in the next 2 games.
This set them up to finish second and to meet St. Pats in the Grand final. The girls started the game enthusiastically along with a great fighting spirit but unfortunately St. Pats were too strong and ran away victors.
All Terang students should be very proud of the way they played throughout the day, their fantastic sportsmanship and encouragement to their team members was great to watch.
Thanks to Mr Castersen, Leah and Belinda for coaching on the day and to James, Tom and Leah for training the students during their lunch breaks leading up to Hoop Time.
