Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
The Southland and Southland Country representative basketball teams left for Greymouth in 1963 to attend the National Tournament.
It was a rare day in that six sisters, were all representing Southland that weekend.
Monica Fahey, Ceclia Fahey and Eileen Fahey were all playing in the A team.
Maureen was a member of the second grade team.
The two younger sisters, twins - Marie Fahey and Dorothy Fahey were playing in the primary school tournament at Gore.
Monica had strained a knee in a game against Otago the previous week.
Dunedin spectators were in awe of the two forwards, Monica and Eileen who played a fast paced game.
When Monica was injured and was replaced by Celia the crowd applauded the sisters and the way they played their basketball.
