Tournament Result – Wednesday 21st March – Y5/6 Basketball C.V.L. Heats
Yesterday, long after school had finished, our Y5/6 Basketball team took to the courts at Ellis Guilford Sports Centre, ready for the second round of CVL heats.
Our players were fully aware that only the top 3 schools would qualify for the finals (in a weeks time) and therefore 3 schools would be eliminated by the end of the night!
In the first of the round robin games, Whitemoor came up against another SHINE school - Scotholme primary. Scotholme had clearly been practising lots, with their team winning 9-8, in what was a superb game of basketball.
The next game saw Whitemoor play their victors from the previous heat - Southwark. This week was a different story however, with our team playing fantastically well, leading to a hugely impressive 18-9 win.
The last game pitted us against Brocklewood. After some initial nervy moments, Whitemoor came away with a 14-4 victory.
These 2 wins, and the 2 from last week, meant we had gained enough points to qualify for the grand finals on the 28th March! Well done to all involved.
Tonight's Y5/6 Basketball team consisted of: Jayden R, Mason T, Aiden L, Elhadi M, Jacob S, Brian D, Natijah L, Jahkyi C, Sahnairi P, Nevaya P, Kamara J and Sophie H.
