Key Stage 3 County Basket Ball Finals

After winning the East Beds basketball competition before Christmas,  our boys and girls basketball teams competed at the Bedfordshire School Games county finals this week.

Over the two day, both teams played a full day of matches against the other winning schools from across the county. Both teams grew in confidence as the day went on, and with each match that passed the teams learnt something to take into the next.

Each team played a total of six matches and both were up against some fantastic teams. Even if the scoreline wasn’t on our side we kept fighting for every ball and enjoyed every second. The commitment and dedication from both the boys are girls has been second to none where they’ve given up more or less every lunchtime to practice.

For our first even county finals competition we did ourselves proud and now have something to build on for the future.  A special mention to J Butler and S Dreyer who were the players of the tournament and also Mrs Monaghan and Miss Coppenhall attending with me.
