If you watched the Australian Women’s National Basketball team at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics which concluded on 8 August 2021, you might have noticed a familiar face scoring hoops for the 12-strong Opals. It’s Sara Blicavs, a previous student of Sunbury College! Sara’s addition to the team’s roster was a last-minute decision but one that definitely brought good news to her parents and the entire Sunbury community. It’s clear where Sara gets it from, both her parents have been former Olympians representing the country for basketball. Reaching the Olympic platform is a big feat in itself, when coupled with the team’s quarterfinal qualifications, it made for a big celebration for the Sunbury Community. Despite being defeated by the USA, Sara and her team have done us proud! Sara currently plays for Southside Flyers, a professional basketball club based in Dandenong. Sara Blicavs is a testament to our core values of resilience and endeavour. We are extremely proud of our student community and their achievements!
