Emily’s GIS (A-Team) won GOLD in the U11 ISKL Basketball Tournament in Kuala Lumpur.
The GIS A-Team won their pool matches relatively easily with wins over NEXUS, MKIS and Alice Smith by 20 to 30 point margins. This saw them play and win their semi-final against the GIS B-Team who were runners up in the other pool.
The final was against their rival ISKL and was a nail-biter. Very low scoring and very intense with GIS winning 10 to 8. Despite being double and triple tagged, Emily got two good lay-ups plus one assist and the whole GIS team played a fantastic defensive game.
Emily in action…
Despite the ISKL coach saying they had spent the last two weeks training around how to shut down Emily, GIS were still victorious. Emily played a tough game, was poleaxed and pushed quite a few times but she stuck in there and the team rallied well.
Receiving their medals…
The GIS B-Team had a great result with Bronze, especially as they were mainly Grade 5 girls. Of course their coach had a lot to do with their bronze and the buzz around the place was that a new Super Coach was in the making. Oh I think I neglected to say that Molly was their coach!!!
Super Coach in action… GIS A and B Team Together
Molly (Coach) Bronze, Emily (Player) Gold
