National Basketball Honours & Tournament Team Selection for TGS players

Over the school holidays a number of TGS students represented North Harbour in the Under 15 basketball nationals held at the Pulman Arena, Auckland.

The Harbour U15 girls team which included three TGS players, Zenthia Stowers, Bailey Flavell and Amy McKenzie, qualified easily for the quarter-finals. Harbour dominated the quarter-final match against Manawatu winning 102-55 with Bailey equal top scoring with 20 points. The team also had TGS input in the coaching with Roger assistant coach for the side.

The team beat Hawkes Bay in their semi-final 89-69 to progress to the national final. Zenthia top scored in the match with 18 points.

The final match was against a strong Waikato side. It was great to see for some time during the game all 3 of our TGS players were on the court together. Harbour put together a strong game on both attack and defense after settling some early nerves to come away with a 87-60 win and a gold medal.

At the conclusion of the tournament both Bailey and Zenthia were named in the tournament team.

Congratulations to all involved.
