AOSR HS Basketball and Cheer Return from European Championships
AOSR HS Basketball and Cheer Return from European Championships

Welcome back to our HS basketball and cheer athletes who competed last week in the European Championship in Wiesbaden, Germany.

"This year's competition pushed our teams to perform at our highest level and we walk away having demonstrated resilience and teamwork.

Our boys closed their season with a tough game against the #1 seed and eventual champion of the tournament, Black Forest Academy. The energy and effort put into defending and the patience demonstrated in looking for the best shooting opportunity on the other end kept us in the game through the fourth quarter.

Our girls team matched up against Aviano in their last group play game, knowing they needed to win by a wide margin in-order to force a three-way tie for third place and go through on point difference. Our girls put everything in the game and came out victorious 40 - 24! MMI however, went through to the semi-finals riding a two point difference over our Falcons.

After a 4 am wakeup on Saturday morning, for final preparations for the Cheer Competition our squad hit the mat performing second in the Division II competition. The crowd went crazy for our dancing, while the cheer and stunt portions of the routine were executed perfectly. Both Laura and Zefan were recognised among the best of the best for the 2018 tournament, having garnered votes from coaches and judges throughout the tournament for their spirited performances and skills!"
