St Joseph's Boys Basketball
Last night St Joseph's basketball supporters were treated to an exciting and tightly contested game of basketball played between two St Joseph's teams at the Waitaki Rec Centre as part of the weekly basketball competition. The Thunder and the Warriors teams played the game in great spirit in front of many St Joseph's supporters with the Warriors winning 30 to 29. At the beginning of the season, the boys had to trial for their teams and both teams were selected on equal ability which showed in last nights game. Well done boys.
