Open Boys Basketball 2022 State Champs

In week 5, the Open Boys Basketball Team travelled to Adelaide to compete in the State Division 3 finals competing against Portside, Investigator, Unity, Caritas and Balaclava in a round robin tournament. After 4 hard fought games throughout the course of the day, both Caritas and Grant High School were undefeated, and set to play in the final game with the state championship title up for grabs for whoever came out on top. In an intense back and forth battle, with both teams going all out, a late Caritas 3 pointer tied the game up with only a few seconds remaining. The Grant High School boys had 1 final shot attempt to win the game outright with a buzzer beater but missed, and the game ended in a tie.

In anti-climactic fashion and no overtime being able to be played, the result of the title was decided by percentage, whereby Grant High School were crowned the winners of the State Division 3 title due to the results earlier in the day. Well done to Zayne Young, Nelson Forbes, Ben Young, Sam Couldrey, Lachlan Ray, Maximus Hooper, Brydon Klingberg and James Allen on a fantastic effort and bringing home the title.
