2024 Term 1 Basketball

There has been a flurry of Interschool carnivals and games in Term 1 for the Specialist Basketball program. Our Junior Boys competed in an ACC Wildcard competition after school, and the team performed to a high standard, finishing third in their pool, which included basketball powerhouses JSR and Kingsway. 

Our Senior Boys, Senior Girls and Junior Girls all took part in one-day carnivals for the ACC Championship, and all teams played well across their games, with the boys and Junior girls finishing 3rd in their pools. The Senior Girls won their pool and finished 2nd overall, earning a Play-In game for the Final 16 of the Championship tournament on 26 March.

In a vote of confidence for the program, MCC was invited to be part of the SSWA Southern Specialist Schools league for the Senior Boys and Girls. While this has proved to be a logistical challenge fitting after-school games into an already packed schedule for our players and staff, it has been an incredible opportunity to measure the program against some of the state’s powerhouse schools, including Willetton SHS, Kennedy Baptist and Darling Range. The competition runs for ten weeks and will continue into Term 2. It is an exciting time to be part of basketball at MCC, and we are looking forward to many more opportunities during the year for our students to showcase their talents.
