Participation in the state finals in the sport of basketball
The boys' team (WK III) of TRIAS Schulen Elsterberg had qualified for the state finals in November. The national competition for schools "Jugend trainiert für Olympia & Paralympics" is held every school year.
This year they were allowed to travel to Dresden and play against schools like Chemnitzer Schulmodell, Gymnasium BW Dresden, Evangelische Oberschule Belgern and Sport-Gymnasium Chemnitz. They are all winners of the regions Bautzen, Chemnitz, Dresden, Leipzig and we of Zwickau.
The boys were very excited and were already dreaming of Berlin, where the national final will take place in May.
The game mode was "everyone against everyone", with a playing time of 2 x 8 min.
The first team against Evangelische OS Belgern was clearly won with 36:0. Against the Sport Gymnasium it did not look good: lost 37:5.
With 21:19 the third game against the Gymnasium BW Dresden was lost after a very good fight and effort and unfortunately the bronze medal.
In the last game against BW Dresden they tried everything again. They had given up a bit and the strength was also missing in the end: 51:16 lost.
Being there is everything. Making it to the state finals was already a very big success.
We will be back next year and stronger, I promise.
Thank you to the comrades-in-arms Mrs. Tietz, Mrs. Zander and Mr. Buschner.
Oskar, Felix, Tamino, Friedrich, Pascal, Jonathan and Sebastian, you gave everything.
