We are back again to the State Championships for Basketball for Declan this year. Unfortunately, this year the event was held a week later than usual, which meant I was back at work and Belinda was on her own for the first few days (possibly not such a bad thing for Belinda).
Because I was working, Ryan went to stay with Ma, at Mt Mee for the week. Belinda headed up there on Tuesday to drop him off, and then headed to the Gold Coast for Declan’s first game on Wednesday.
After work on Friday I headed down to join Belinda, Declan and Emma at the Alpha Sovereign Hotel. The first game of Declan’s I got to see was on Saturday where he scored four 3 pointers! He played exceptionally well the whole game. I think he has improved on his 3 point shots a lot, due to me challenging him to games of round the world.
The Mountaineers won both of their games on Saturday. Below are a few photos from over the whole event.
Here is a video of some court time of Declan in his final game on Sunday. It was a very close (and tense) game as they were leading by most of the game, but unfortunately in the end they lost by just 5 points.
