Melville Intermediate - Basketball Vs. Fairfield Int.

On Tuesday our Girls Basketball team travelled to Fairfield Intermediate School in Hamilton for our NZAIMS Tournament team to play against the Fairfield Intermediate Boys team. The NZAIMS tournament is just thirty days away and is taking place in Tauranga. This year there are over 160 schools and 5800 students competing in the different sports. Melville Intermediate are contesting the Gymsport Hip Hop and Girls Basketball competitions.  Our girls teams in the past three years have finished 1st (2009), 4th (2010) and 3rd (2011) in New Zealand.  The current team has been playing together for nearly a year and a half, although on Tuesdays when we have the Waikato Basketball competition we have some players in their club teams.   The Girls have been looking for warm up games prior to the competition and were very excited to travel to Fairfield Intermediate.  Although they played a Boys team that had rep players in it, the Melville Intermediate Girls led by eight points at half time and we able to stretch that lead further in the second half and defeated Fairfield 44-31.  Tia from Room Eighteen top scored 16 points in the game.  Sam from Room Five was present and filmed some high lights.
