Girls' finals!West Coast Secondary Schools' Junior Basketball Tournament - Girls
Thursday saw all the Junior Basketballers from the West Coast gather at the Westland Recreation Centre for yet another exciting inter-school tournament! With many games going on in one day we ran a 7minute running clock version of the game which made for some fast paced basketball!
The girls competition had teams from Greymouth High, Buller High, John Paul II and South Westland Area School.
Bright and early had our girls take on old foes JPII where both teams took a while to find their grove, however a big second half from GHS proved to be the difference with JPII only knocking down 4 points to GHS's 22! GHS got the win 41-23. Top scorers: Tyra Jamieson 15, Ella Rae-Wood 8.
Second game was always going to be a tough one taking on the basketball powerhouse of BHS. With a head full of steam from the first win GHS ran out to a 14-4 lead, however once BHS warmed up in the second they got some important buckets bringing it back to a 4 point ball game. Third was very quiet from both teams 6-4 and the final quarter BHS just outscored GHS 8-10 but that first quarter deficit proved to be the important factor, GHS taking the win 34-30. Top scorers: Tyra Jamieson 17, Ruby Roberts 11.
The third game gave the coach a chance to give the bench some important minutes against a spirited SWAS team. Samara Uriao and Bronah Gibbens made the most of their opportunity racking up 14 and 10 points respectively. A dominate performance from the GHS girls winning 43-6 gave them a great lead into finals.
BHS were into the finals against GHS after taking a close win over JPII (39-36) in the final round robin game of the day. A close first quarter saw GHS edge out to a narrow 3 point lead but a strong second from GHS outscoring BHS 10-6 pushed that lead even further. Both teams were fighting through tiredness in the third but Ella Rae-Wood shooting the lights out getting 10 consecutive points in the fourth proved to be just too much for BHS to overcome. GHS taking the win and Junior Girls Basketball bragging rights 45-25! Top scorers: Jessie Trevathan 13, Ella Rae-Wood 12, Tyra Jamieson 12.
Final Placings: 1st GHS, 2nd BHS, 3rd JPII, 4th SWAS

Congratulations girls and thank you to coach Cameron Birchfield, what a fantastic display of basketball - Bring on SISS Junior Tournament!

Boys' Finals!West Coast Secondary Schools' Junior Basketball Tournament - Boys
Thursday saw all the Junior Basketballers from the West Coast gather at the Westland Recreation Centre for yet another exciting inter-school tournament! With many games going on in one day we ran a 7minute running clock version of the game which made for some fast paced basketball!
The boys competition had 4 strong teams of Greymouth High, John Paul II, Westland High and South Westland Area School all putting on some very slick basketball.
GHS first up had JPII and what a great first game! A huge first half by GHS racking up 32 points to JPII's 14 made it exciting for what was to come next, however JPII came back fighting outscoring our boys in the last to quarters 6-10 and 9-12. It was a hiss and a roar to start the comp which helped our boys take the win 47-35. Top scorers: Jack Campbell 10, Matthew Robbins 10.
Game two against WHS where once again GHS came out firing lead by Matthew Robbins and the Campbell boys getting in some serious points. That second half had things slow right down again and the strong first half deficit of 32-20 just made that gap for WHS too much to over come, GHS making it two from two, 45-30. Top scorers: Tom Campbell 14, Matthew Robbins 13, Jack Campbell 11.
Third game against SWAS saw our big lads stamp their authority on the game with the coaches able to give them some great minutes. This had GHS scoring strong in every quarter making it to double digits 15-0, 16-6, 15-3, 10-0. A great game to send them through to the finals! 56-9. Top scorers: Phaze Dry 18, Tyrone Mahia 8, Jack Campbell 13.
The final had us up against JPII where not matter what there is some real feeling in the game. This game was played with 10minute running quarters and had our boys take things to another gear (which I didn't know they had!). It was close in the first GHS just holding that lead 15-12, JPII fought back in the second 16-17 but it was the do or die quarter of the third where GHS went nuts out scoring JPII 17-2! From there GHS boys kept chugging through making some excellent plays and buckets taking the win 64-44. Top scorers: Matthew Robbins 22, Jack Campbell 14, Tyrone Maiha 12.

Well done to a monster Junior team! Excellent and slick display of basketball on show and thank you to coaches Tom Fahey and Pat Bell for running these boys.
