Junior Hooptime

On the 14th of September the Year 3/4s went to Hooptime at Dandenong. OLGC had 10 teams playing. For some students this was their first basketball competition and for others it was a chance to play with class mates in a friendly competition. The All Stars boys won all their matches except for one, and made it through to the semi final which they won. They unfortunately lost the Grand final by 3 points to St Augustine. However, they made Regionals on a wild card. The All Star girls won all their matches and made it safely to the Grand-final which they won 16 – 4. They also progress to Regionals next term. The Future Star teams also played well and most teams made it to the semifinals but sadly all lost. They had a great day and enjoyed the chance to play with students from other classes. The Rookies also had a fun day and improved their basketball skills by the end of the day, with many shooting a goal. Their biggest score was 10 to 0. Hooptime  is a chance for students to play in a fun basketball competition against other schools with referees. All of our students enjoyed this opportunity. Well done to our Year 3/4s and good luck to our All Star teams at Regionals.

Senior Hooptime 2017

On Monday 24th July, all our Year 5/6 students participated  in the Box Hill District Hooptime Day at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC). OLGC had 7 teams: an All Stars Boys and Girls team, 4 Future Star teams and a Rookies team for our beginner basketballers.  It was a fun and tiring day with lots of basketball being played against other schools in our Box Hill District. As always, the OLGC teams played with energy and determination and displayed sportsmanship and fair play. We were also fortunate to have many talented parent coaches and scorers for our teams. Two teams: the All Star Girls and Future Star Oilers, won their pools and advance through to the Regional Hooptime  competition. The All Star Boys team unfortunately lost their final. Congratulations to all of our players.
