Basketball. St Peter Chanel Catholic Primary School has gained a Grand Final victory at the North West Primary School Regional Tournament in Devonport.
The school was represented by a girls team and boys team in the grade five and six divisions, with both sides displaying top sportsmanship and producing quality games throughout the competition.
Coached by Sarah Jaeger, the girls remained undefeated during the two-day tournament to gain the Division Two title.
Playing on Saturday October 28, the side earned two convincing wins during the first day of play before facing Somerset in the Preliminary Final on the Sunday, in the toughest match of the weekend.
Making it to the Grand Final against St Brigid’s, a close contest ensued until the opposition began to tire, prompting St Peter Chanel to push harder for the 43 to 27 victory.
Coached by Nicki Pitt, the boys showed solid improvement across the weekend and consistent teamwork. The side finished in third place in Division Two after narrowly being defeated by Stella Maris in the Preliminary Final.
