On Friday 28th March Berwick College participated in its first Academy Challenge against Albert Park Basketball Academy. Many of the players parents were there to witness a day of great success. All our students put their skills to the test and we ended up bringing home the inaugural Academy Challenge trophy.
State 3 on 3 – Wrap Up
Berwick College had 7 boys teams and 6 girls teams compete in the State 3 on 3 competitions over the last week in March. All teams represented Berwick College with distinction.
Through the tournaments 2 teams triumphed with podium finishes. The Intermediate Girls #1 team and Senior Boys #1 team both finished in 3rd position. These were great performances as the students came up against some very strong competition from both government and private schools from across the state.
Two sides that performed brilliantly on the day were the Intermediate Girls #3 team who were a late entry. These girls came up against girls up to 3 years older and were able to come away with a couple of victories. Finishing the day ranked 15th in Victoria. The Junior Boys #4 team also did brilliantly. They were all year 7’s and only lost 2 games for the day. The first was by 2 points to the eventual State Champs and the other was by 1 point to the team who finished in 3rd position.
