Year 7/8 & 9 basketball
The combined Year 7/8 basketball team travelled to Medway Park in February to compete in the Secondary Schools Games against the finest teams Medway had to offer. The boys managed to earn their spot in the 3rd place playoff against Howard after beating Strood Academy and Greenacre along the way. The game for a bronze medal vs Howard was intense and we performed well in the first half of the game, after a tough contest Howard eventually came out on top and left our boys in a very respectable 4th place out of 10 schools.
Year 9 boys worked hard this season in both training sessions on Tuesday and in their after school fixtures vs other schools. They played incredibly well and beat Hundred of Hoo and Victory Academy to earn their way into the semi-finals of the Medway Basketball League. We were unfortunate to come up against an incredibly strong Robert Napier side who proved to be too strong on the day and beat us in all four quarters. There is a lot of talent in this team and we’re excited at the prospect of seeing them develop even further in the coming years.
