Vic College Championship Basketball – Carrum Downs
Earlier in the year the combined Flinders Tyabb- Carrum Downs Campus entered teams for the Vic College Basketball Championships for the Junior and Intermediate boys and girls divisions. The Senior boys teams was given an automatic qualification due to its high ranking in past tournaments. Both girl’s team qualified to compete in the finals which was played at MSAC last week.
Although the Flinders Tyabb-Carrum Downs teams fought bravely in their pooling rounds, they were unable to close out games and were eliminated due to the depth of the competition. However, the junior girls team managed to come back from a fourteen point deficit to win by two points in their consolation play off game for 7th and 8th place. The senior boy’s team was placed in Division 1 and gave it everything they had, but were out gunned in their pooling rounds by more experienced teams. However they did play their best match in the consolation final for 7th and 8th place just going down by three points.
