Girton Basketballers Go Globetrotting

in Junior School News/Senior School News

Members of the Girton Basketball Club were treated to a skills session with the world famous Harlem Globetrotters who were in Bendigo recently as part of their promotional tour of Australia.

Globetrotters Sean ‘Scooter’ Christensen and Corey ‘Thunder’ Law visited the school and wowed students with their impressive skills and awesome trick shots.

Selected student players took part in a very entertaining game of ‘knock out’, involving taking shots from the free-throw line, as well as a ‘lay-up’ race. The Globetrotters were hugely impressed with the skills of the Girton basketball players as well as the enthusiasm of the onlooking students. The Win News story can be viewed here:
