Miniball - 20th July 2015


Both the Rockets and the Comets have had incredibly successful seasons and are looking like strong contenders for Term 3. The Rockets played exceptionally well to finish the term with a resounding win against the Small Blacks, finishing in the top half of the league; and the Comets came close to victory in their game against Kingsway Red – a wonderful achievement for our new players.
 A giant thank you to those players who attended both matches (Jared Davies, Annabelle Duncan, Josh Hill, Rory Brabant) as a number of our team members were unable to make Finals Night due to holiday dates.
Congratulations to both teams on an excellent term’s work!
Rockets: Joshua Hill, Austin McAlpine, Charlotte Sancto-Jones, Kiera Jordan, Rory Brabant
Comets: Annabelle Duncan, Michelle Kim, Alexander Kawan, Emily McLeish, Corbus Luke

The future of Wentworth basketball looks to be in very safe hands – watch this space!

Basketball 20th July 2015

Basketball Y5/6

The Falcons completed an outstanding term’s play by appearing in their League Final against opposition Kingsway Guardians. Our Falcons had been undefeated all season but unfortunately, due to term/holiday dates, Wentworth was unable to field a full team. Nevertheless, in true Wentworth spirit, two netballers (Rosie Li and Orion Houseman) stepped forward to ensure we could play the match. Despite neither girl having played basketball before, they were fantastic, energetic and determined and, with the guidance and support of the other team members (Matthew Brabant, Brodie Cruse and Poppy Sancto-Jones), the Falcons were able to match the Guardians goal for goal. Luck was not on our side, however, and just before the half-time whistle, Poppy collided with a Kingsway player, falling awkwardly and twisting her knee. Her younger sister, Rockets’ member Charlotte, bravely stepped in to fill the gap and played admirably but a couple of lucky breaks in the last few minutes of the game meant that the Guardians just managed to snatch victory from our grasp, winning the game by only a few points.
Congratulations to our Falcons: Matthew Brabant, Mattias Coutts, Brodie Cruse, Raphael Day, Savannah Marston-Fergusson and Poppy Sancto-Jones.

Huge thanks to Orion Houseman, Rosie Li and Charlotte Sancto-Jones.
