As the school year comes to a close we congratulate all our athletes for their efforts representing BSSC during 2015. Our BMX riders completed last weekend in state titles, while our basketballers are about to head off to the nationals.
Congratulations to Matthew White, Jay Beazley and Jordan Hall who all competed in the 2015 BMX Victoria State Titles in Shepparton last weekend.
