Bendigo hosted nearly 500 Marist College basketball students from across Australia this week in a four-day tournament at Bendigo Stadium. Senior boys and girls teams from 22 Marist schools attended the event, which was co-hosted by Marist College Bendigo.

The principal of Marist College Bendigo Darren McGregor said the sporting tournament brings students from Marist Colleges together in the spirit of fair play.

“Bendigo is a terrific place to gather for this year’s carnival and we hope players and families have the opportunity to experience a little of what this regional city has to offer,” Mr McGregor said.
