Year 3 and 4 basketball team win back their title!

The year 3 and 4 basketball team competed in the Richmond Knights tournament at Christ's school on Tuesday 1st May and came home victorious, having won all four games to regain their title as champions! The team won their first game against Holy Trinity convincingly 16-0 but had a closer battle against Barnes, finally winning 14-10. They also played St Elizabeth's and St Mary Magdalens (the reigning champions) but managed to defeat both, 14-7 and 10-2 respectively.

This is the third tournament that the team have competed in this year and it has been fantastic to watch them develop their skills, tactics and the ability to work as a team. They received a special mention from the coach, praising them for being much less selfish with the ball this tournament; they are passing more freely and really looking for space to pass into. It was an exciting tournament where all the children showed such enthusiasm for the game. They didn't give up on any ball, fighting for possession and defending their basket well. I am very proud of all the children who took part and am excited for the next tournament already!

Well done to: Kate, Claire, Max, Max, Joseph, Nico, Sam, Cameron and George
