Year 9 Basketball - County Quarter Finals
On Tuesday 5 February we travelled the long journey to the Priory Belvoir Academy to play in the quarter finals of the county Basketball. Belvoir have been county champions in Year 7 and 8 so we knew it was going to be a tough match.
The score was close throughout all the quarters with there never being more than 3 points between the two teams. In the last quarter however, Emma and Eve made some great attacking lay ups and there was some consistent defending by all the girls. We pulled away in the last two minutes of the game to win 34 – 27.
The girls now play Rawlins Academy in the next round, the team we got knocked out by one point last year. Team: Mira, Emma R, Eve, Carys, Daniela, Jayna, and Nadia
