  • U14 Girls through to Basketball County Finals

    Amazing play leads to next round

    An amazing district round saw the year 8/9 girls win a home match against Joesph Whitaker School 54 - 4.

    It was the first time the girls had played together as they were in separate competitions last year. But they soon bonded and played some awesome Basketball. They showed their skills by playing half court and full court press over the 40 minute game. Each and every girl played so well the team could have had a whole change and it wouldn't have made a difference. Good Luck in January at the finals.
