Alt basketball teams have improved greatly this season. The Senior B team have had several wins lately and last week they defeated Tech 18-2. However, because some of the players were held up by the local tram service and arrived late they had to default the game, although their win was well deserved.
The Intermediate A team have also been winning and defeated Wellington Taxis 19-9 last Saturday even though the game was played in the rain. Three members of this team have been selected for the Wellington reps. Congratulations go to Val Berry the captain, Lance Colquhoun, Shirley Hicks and Alison Richards of the Senior B team who have been selected for the Senior B reps.
Our junior teams have been playing consistently although there is still room for improvement. If more members of the club turned out for practice on Monday nights we should end the sesaon with some very good results.
