Four years and still undefeated

Four years and still undefeated


SIX DELORAINE High School girls have done the hard yakka for the past four years, supported by car pooling parents and travelling to Launceston every week to play basketball teams from the likes of Scotch Oakburn,  Prospect and Kings Meadows.

Mimi McKee, Erin Paine, Juanita Buttery, Hannah Beck, Zoe Robertson and Lakitta Bartlett have formed the nucleus which has remained undefeated that whole time.

This year, the girls took it one step further, being able to enter the Northern High Schools Sports Association’s Grade 10 basketball competition.

They achieved the Holy Grail of Grade 10 Division 1 girls basketball, defeating Queechy High School 49-26 in the Grand Final to win the premiership and Deloraine High School’s first Grima Cup.

The cup will reside at Deloraine High School for one year.
