Thomson Trophy Div 2 Winners

Congratulations to the Senior Boys’ Basketball team, winning the Division 2 Thomson Trophy Competition vs Ashburton on Tuesday.  It was a game of two halves, with Papanui making a comeback to take the game 89-80. It was great to see so many spectators supporting the team, and enjoying the great atmosphere. Well done to all players and management involved. We look forward to hearing how you go at Tournament next week in Invercargill.
