The boys won all Pool B games against McAuley Catholic College, Tumut; St John Paul’s Catholic College, Coffs Harbour; Champagnat Catholic College, Maroubra; St Dominic’s Catholic College, Kingswood and Edmund Rice College, Wollongong. In the grand final, St Gregory’s Catholic College from Southwest Sydney used their physical play and experience to outlast the Eddie’s boys by a close score of 34-28. In the state tournament, the junior team averaged 35 points a game while allowing their opponents 25 points per game.
The team was led by Year 8 starters Max James, Charlie Mogg, Oli Power and Riley Stauner-Lumsden, who all showed great hustle and leadership throughout both tournaments. Year 8 boys Meihana Gardiner, Kye McIntosh, Patrick Oates and Tahj Regattieri provided outstanding play at all positions when needed. The youngest boys on the team, Year 7 boys AJ Tillot, Cruiz Parke and Oscar McMahon, were all valuable contributors in each game.
