Waitākere College Year 11 student Isabella Gasu and team representing Sāmoa, were crowned winners of the FIBA U16 Women’s Asian Championship 2022 Division B!!!
In a nail-biting game this morning, Sāmoa was crowned winners of the FIBA U16 Women’s Asian Championship 2022 Division B competing against Syria.
Syria had previously beaten Samoa in the Group Phase in their very first games, but this turned out to be a much tighter contest to decide the winner of the Division B. In the end, it was Sāmoa who emerged victorious this time around, 79-76.
On Wednesday they played a ferocious Philippines side winning 86:73.
Isabella's excited parents contacted us this morning to update us on her progress "Thank you again for your support for Isabella Who has learned so much and flourished under this top level of her sport."
Go Sāmoa and go Isabella, Waitākere College is so proud of you!
