The Tom Price Se­nior High School men’s basketball team were the proud win­ners of their first pre­mier­ship at State school sports event WA Coun­try Week last month.

The team took out the di­vi­sion E cat­e­gory with strong de­fen­sive play and was the school’s only over­all win­ning side in this year of the com­pe­ti­tion.

They recorded four wins and two losses by only a hand­ful of points to get to the fi­nal, be­fore ul­ti­mately de­feat­ing Col­lie by one point af­ter their op­po­nents failed to tie from free throws just be­fore the siren. Team coach Troy Bloxsidge said he was proud of their ef­fort.

“I’m very happy with how they all per­formed. They re­ally came to­gether well and played to­gether as a team, and sup­ported each other well both on and off the court,” he said.
