Trafford North Year 8 Basketball competition

March 10th, 2017 | Posted by jkeating in Front Page News | School News

Last night was the first round of the Trafford North Year 8 Basketball competition.
Our team had recently been formed and were new to playing together.  This did not stand in the way of them performing with great effort, enthusiasm and energy.
Stretford Grammar were a force to be reckoned with but our defensive strategies paid off as we kept them to only 3 baskets, narrowly missing out on a win by 2 baskets.
St. Anthony’s were next and put up a good fight but we got some amazing shots in and managed to get a win.
We put up an amazing effort against Urmston, it was a very close game with Urmston edging us out by one basket.
Flixton was our last game and both teams were hungry for the win, our girls were tired but never showed it, grit and determination kicked in and we pulled together for an amazing 6-4 win, Humaira scoring the last basket.
We came an amazing third place overall, well done ladies!  Special thanks to Otto Malone for all his help with training!
