In a superb display of stamina, skill and strategy, the SoEd Staff All Stars took home the inaugural Student Staff Basketball trophy on Court 1 yesterday. While the B.Ed fourth years presented a youthful team who hardly broke a sweat sprinting up and down the court, the All Stars triumphed with a winning combination of age and a small height advantage!
The staff team included Anna (Captain), Nicky, Toni, Jade, Allison, Jeff, Al, and Jason. The student team, included Tayla Mason (Captain), Alex Maxwell, Carli Devine, Georgia Page, Georgina Aquilina, Jayden Stapleton, James Pavlidis, Trent Ryan, Tristen Jones, Dylan Peric and Stephanie.
All players were terrific sports who played hard, even if some didn’t quite know the rules!
Prematch music was curated by DJ Travy P. The game was expertly scored by Samantha, while referee Meaney kept everyone in order. Courtside commentary was provided by MC Richard ‘Magic’ Johnson complete with wig, Ross and Dorothy the Dinosaur (aka Bronte).
It was a great end to the fourth year’s final day with enthusiastic student and staff fans lining both sides of the court.
Thanks to Anna and Tayla whose vision and excellent organisation made it happen and to all staff and students who contributed.
The cup will be proudly displayed in the SoEd Bundoora trophy cabinet. At least until next year!
