Melville Intermediate - Live from the AIMS Games 2011

Melville Intermediate School has been competing in the 2011 AIMS Games in Tauranga.  We've been competing in Girls Basketball against 11 other school and are one of over a hundred schools and some 4,000 students competing for the week.

Melville Intermediate Girls started the 2011 Campaign strongly with a win against local school Te Kura Kokiri 31-22.   They followed this up with their second game of Monday morning against Kaitoa Middle School 46-36.  Both these games were incredibly close games, with Melville trailing both at half time.

Tuesday morning they played their third game, against North Habour Champions Murrays Bay Intermediate School.  It was another titanic encounter, with only a four point margin seperating the two teams in the fourth quarter.  Murrays Bay proved their class in the end winning 37-27.

Melville Intermediate now take on 2009 finalists Hastings Intermediate in their second pool game today before playing Chisnallwood Intermediate from Christchurch tomorrow.  We'll keep you posted.
