On Thursday 3 August, four McCarthy Basketball teams competed in the Diocesan Basketball Competition in order to qualify for the NSWCCC Junior Basketball Championships.
All four teams dominated throughout the day, despite a late charge from O'Connor Catholic College in the 7/8 Boys and 9/10 Boy divisions in the final games of the day, to determine which team qualified.
All four McCarthy teams placed first in their respective divisions, and will now travel to Penrith in October to compete in the NSWCCC Junior Basketball Championships held over two days.
I would like to thank Mr Marcus Chittick and Mrs Natahlia Bryant for their assistance in helping the day run smoothly, the parents who volunteered to assist in scoring the games, and our Year 11 referees who gave up their time to officiate on the day.
