Friday Night Basketball

23 February 2018

Each Friday night, Glennie competes in the St Mary’s Old Boys Association Basketball Challenge. We have teams in all three divisions - Years 7-8, Years 9-10 and Years 11-12. It has been a somewhat difficult start to the year for all teams, with most other schools having far more basketball experience. We certainly make up for our lack of experience through tenacity and enthusiasm. Last week saw our Years 7-8, team chalk up their first win of the season against Toowoomba State High. Despite a parochial home crowd, the Glennie Girls hung on to record a 5 point victory. This week we travel to Downlands to play against TACAPS.

Pictured is the Years 7-8 team.
