After school on Wednesday 9th November, Eight Year 6 children represented the school in the Hertford and Ware U11 Mixed Basketball Tournament at Presdales School.
We starter with two very tough games against Morgans and Christchurch (much bigger schools than us!) which we unfortunately lost in very close games. Our next two matches led to victories against Priors Wood and St Catherine’s. What pleased me most as coach was the children working out for themselves that our lack of height against other teams meant more bounce passes would be beneficial. In our final group game we narrowly lost to St John’s meaning we came 4th out of 6.
Our final game was the 7th and 8th place play-off which we convincingly won. The children represented the school brilliantly and all enjoyed taking part.
