MIGHTY Mights took out the boys title in the Raiwaqa Basketball U19 competition at Ed's Court.

They thrashed surprise finalist Marist 48-24 in the final yesterday to stamp their mark in the age grade competition.

Dynamic Reds took out the girls title edging Yat Sen 28-23 in the final.

In the boys semi-finals, Mighty Mights thrashed MacPacers 41-12 while Marist upset LDS I 37-36.

However, in the girls semi-finals, Yat Sen overcame Iconic Reds 31-17 while Dynamic Reds beat Mystics 32-15.

Competition official Peniasi Kainamoli said the school teams used the competition as a build-up to the secondary schools competition which would start later this month.

"For teams like LDS, Yat Sen and Marist, this competition was a good build-up for them in the secondary schools competition," he said.

"During the competition, the teams showed improvement with every round of game and the school teams managed to identify their weaknesses which they would need to work on before the secondary schools competition starts."
