Tournament Result – Thursday 10th December – Y5/6 Basketball Finals
On Thursday 10th December, our Y5/6 basketball players took to the courts again to compete in the City Schools' Finals.
This time around the competition was a lot tougher, but every member of the team raised their game to match the challenge.
Despite a promising start, we lost our first game to Old Basford 4-8. However, we followed this with a 12-6 win against Heathfield, a 6-6 draw with Burford and a 10-4 win against Glade Hill. This meant we finished in second place in our group, so qualified for the semi finals…
Unfortunately in this match we lost to Robin Hood, the eventual winners, by 1 basket (4-6), but still got the the chance to compete in a third/fourth place playoff.
The game against Sycamore was very tough and, after a 10-10 draw, went to extra time. Thankfully, we won the game in the last 3 seconds of this period (as result of a wonderful shot from Solomon) and gained the bronze medal.
Although we didn't qualify for the County Finals, we certainly enjoyed our performances and walked away with our heads held high – especially as this was our third medal in a week!
Well done to all the girls and boys involved, who were: Glenn S, Solomon S, Oskar D, Luke W, Tanaka N, Tino C, Ajay S, Kamiya L, Savita A, Jamie H and Grace A.
