Tournament Result – Wednesday 28th March – Y5/6 Basketball C.V.L. Finals
For the third year in a row, our Y5/6 Basketball Team qualified for the finals of the Central Venue League, which was held once again at Ellis Guilford.
Like last year, there were no knockout matches – instead Whitemoor played three games back to back (against Nottingham Academy and the other qualifiers from our heats: Southwark and Scotholme).
In the first of these games, Whitemoor started like a flash. Although their enthusiasm sometimes got the better of them, our players managed to overcome Nottingham Academy 8-5.
Next up were our SHINE Multi Academy Trust friends, Scotholme Primary. In what was an incredibly skillful and hard fought game, Scotholme inflicted a 6-4 defeat on Whitemoor.
Our final game pitted us against a regular opponent, Southwark. To guarantee a medal Whitemoor knew they had to win the match, which they thankfully did (8-6).
When all the points were totaled at the end, Whitemoor were delighted to find out that they'd finished in silver medal position. A massive well done to all 11 players for their superb efforts on the night.
Also, a massive thanks to all the parents, guardians, ex-pupils and staff who came to show their support over the three nights which the league was held. We think Whitemoor's crowd was 25 strong at one point!
Our Basketball team for 'Finals Night' were: Nevaya P, Sahnairi P, Sophie H, Kamara J, Jayden R, Brian D, Mason T, Aiden L, Elhadi M, Natijah L and Jacob S.
