This year is the first year that both of our ACC teams have won the All Stars Basketball cup from SSWA. Coaches and playing staff were ecstatic with their teams' efforts.
In the boys match, the team showed fantastic enthusiasm and team spirit from the get go. The boys played consistently, and lead SSWA from the start, with each of the players contributing to the team's final score, ACC 115 - 80 SSWA.
Congratulations to Derek Igbenoba from Kennedy Baptist College for being awarded Most Valuable Player. Derek was also the team's highest point scorer on the day, shooting an impressive 24 points.
The girls team worked together cohesively and according to their coach, Aneta Ward, utilised numerous set plays that they had devised and practised in their training sessions, to come away with their win over SSWA 75-62.
Congratulations to Carla Drennan from Corpus Christi College for being awarded Most Valuable Player. Carla and Gabriella Radojkovich from Corpus Christi College were the leading scorers, with 11 points each.
