Basketball Presentations 2017

Basketball State Champs Banner 2017

Basketball presentations, 2017

The SAAS basketball presentation was conducted in the Trinity College Pavilion on Monday, Sept 5 to celebrate yet another outstanding year of College basketball.

The Trinity Open A team were recognised for winning the inaugural SAAS A1 basketball title, as well as the College's first Open State Championship since 2005.  Graduating seniors were also thanked and honoured for their contribution to the culture of Trinity basketball.  Team awards were handed out and the College All-Star Five was named.

Special guest was Ricky Simpson, who we all know through our association with Central Districts Basketball Club and STARplex, but none of us would have known his personal story.  Ricky shared 'Taking your chances' message through his unlikely journey from inner-city Atlanta and shooting hoops by car-light, through a College stint in Minnesota where he was one of the only African Americans in the town.  From there, a chance to play professionally in Australia and overcoming setbacks and injuries to forge a life in another country half way around the world.

The College would like to thank all the coaches, parents, scorers, supporters and transporters who helped make 2017 such a fun and rewarding year.
