Sports Report Week 10

5/6 Basketball Day

On Wednesday 28th August, Lorne Year 5/6 students joined together with Apollo Bay to play off in a fun basketball round robin at Lorne.

Students played off in team of 5 and had 3 hours of constant games with the emphasis being on participation and fun whilst getting a chance to improve their basketball skills. Many of the games were very close matches so it was great to see all of our students getting involved and getting to know the Apollo students. Thanks to Fraser and Louis from Year 10 who helped us with umpiring for the games.

7-10 Basketball

Selected students from Year 7- 10 participated in the Coastal Basketball competition with Apollo Bay on Thursday 29th August in what were very tightly contested games and evenly matched teams. Our Year 7/8 students travelled to Apollo Bay with Simon Scholtes to play off against Apollo Bay and Lavers Hill whilst our Year 9/10 students competed against Apollo Bay at Lorne. It was an action packed day of basketball for both groups and all of our teams had some very close games and lots of basketball time, which was fantastic. Once again, an wonderful opportunity for our students to work with the Apollo Bay and Lavers students in a fun and inclusive environment.

A big thanks to Steve Donne who returned to the Lorne campus to assist with the umpiring for the day as his knowledge and coaching experience in basketball is very extensive and valued by all of the students involved!
