Hometown Grins for Wyndham Win
On Thursday May 28th girls from years 7, 8 and 9 spent the day playing basketball at the Wyndham Recreation Centre. Teams from Kununurra and Halls Creek District High Schools travelled to play against two home town teams from Wyndham. Throughout the day there was an exceptional display of skill and talent from all players who endured some hard and challenging games.
At the end of the six qualifying matches three out of the four teams were tied in second with Wyndham District High School Orange Team placing first by only a small percentage. That meant Halls Creek District High and Wyndham District High School White were left to battle it out for last spot in the Grand Final. It was another extremely close match with tight defence from Wyndham as they tried to compete against some fast layup action from Halls Creek.
Unfortunately, Halls Creek fell just short by a basket at the final whistle leaving an all Wyndham Grand Final. The Grand Final did not disappoint. Both Wyndham teams continued to display their great basketball skills up to the very end however Wyndham District High School Orange were just too strong winning the Grand Final by 16 points to be named overall Smarter than Smoking Basketball Champions.
