The "A" Grade team had a good year, participating in four matches and losing one.
The first match played was against Dickson High in the summer visit. Playing good basketball Monaro won this game. This was the only summer match. The second game was also against Dickson, which they won 57-49. They had control of the game for all of its duration because of a more organised attack and defence. Excellent shooting by both sides was a feature of this game.
A good game resulted when Bega played Monaro. Monaro won this 33-25 in a fairly open, fast game.
The last match of the year also resulted in a win to Monaro over Queanbevan 34-27. We won by using the ball to better advantage, with fast breaks, good teamwork and by getting a greater percentage of baskets than Queanbeyan.
Our thanks go to Mr. Pearce, our coach, for his enthusiasm and help.
