Yande­yarra girls’ side bring their A-game

Pilbara News - - Sport -

The an­nual Roe­bourne Girls Academy bas­ket­ball com­pe­ti­tion launched the Roe­bourne NAIDOC Week cel­e­bra­tions.

The day started with an amaz­ing wel­come to coun­try by lo­cal el­ders which en­abled all sup­port­ers, vis­it­ing teams and lo­cals to feel a part of such an im­por­tant week.

Nine teams in to­tal com­peted in the girls and boys leagues over close to 14 games through­out the day. Vis­it­ing schools in­cluded St Luke’s and Yande­yarra.

There was a fan­tas­tic turnout from many lo­cal sup­port­ers in town com­ing down to cheer the many teams on to the fi­nals, where Yande­yarra even­tu­ally came away with a well-de­served win in the girls’ league.

St Luke’s put up an amaz­ing com­pe­ti­tion this year, end­ing up in the fi­nals.

How­ever, the boys’ team, coached by Beau McDon­ald, of V Swans, came away with the win.

Those at­tend­ing the day were treated to amaz­ing mu­sic from Nick and Hemi, who also ed­u­cated kids about their smarter than smok­ing cam­paign, while every­one was fed by the can­teen run by Roe­bourne staff and stu­dents.

This day could not have hap­pened with­out the Roe­bourne Girls Academy re­ceiv­ing a grant from the City of Kar­ratha’s Quar­terly Grant Scheme, in part­ner­ship with North West Shelf Project, which al­lowed the event to grow and de­liver a great out­come.

Most valu­able player for the girls was Shakaya War­rie, from Yande­yarra, while boys’ MVP was De­quarne Roberts, of Roe­bourne.
