BASKETBALL (Sport)

BASKETBALL (Sport)


Boys basketball was introduced as a formal competition in 1981. Two girls’ basketball teams were formed in 1982 and played at Morongo on Wednesday nights. During the winter season of 1984, a team formed from staff and students played in the third division of the competition run by Geelong Amateur Basketball Association (GABA). In 1985 younger teams played in the YWCA competition.

In 1993 Girls’ Teams were entered in the inaugural girls’ APS competition although Pegasus of 1995 records that 1995 ‘marked the first official girls’ basketball APS competition’. In 1999, the boys commenced in the APS competition. A sports trophy known as the The Geelong College Senior School Basketball Champions, donated by the Senior School Parents’ Association in the year 2000, was awarded annually to the winning House in the Senior School competition.
