Another adventure for the 'Dolphins' Basketball Team

Posted: 07-Apr-2014 by All Abilities

Traveling to Westernport Basketball Tournament in Somerville, was a lot of fun for the Maccabi Victoria All Abilities 'Dolphins' basketball team.  It was our teams first experience travelling by mini bus together and everyone was 'pumped up' the tunes for our early morning drive.

We won the first game 17/10 with some great passing. Everyone contributed.  Lauren got knocked over but bravely stood up and continued on. Tough player!! Mattie Michael's used his height well to get close to the basket and Harley Rose ran circles around the opponents confusing them!! 

The second game we lost 22/12 but everyone contributed and put in an amazing effort.  Josh Ferenbach ran hard getting back in defence and Gemma Rubinstein scored some baskets to help our team stay in the game.  Bar Levine also made some amazing shots which the crowd loved! 

After Guy Slome had his bagel for lunch (which the coaches tried to pinch) he came out fighting in game three. Guy made it hard for them to rebound as he tapped the ball away from their basket. Although we lost the last game whereby we played off for third or fourth position, our players continued to thrive. Sharon Breuer worked hard getting up and down the court, Svi Schweitzer hit some big shots and Tess Milgrom was very supportive towards her teammates. 

Both coaches Kathryn and Tia Hay were very proud of the team and feel the Dolphins have improved with their teamwork! Without doubt, the team is constantly improving and we get better with each tournament. 

 A quick stop at McDonalds rounded off our great day and we headed home happily with our fourth placing from six teams!
