Year 7 Girls Basketball Squad - County Schools Winter Games
I had the pleasure of taking the Year 7 Girls Basketball squad to Kettering leisure village on 23.02.17, following them successfully winning the last round at Moulton.
The girls represented South Northants and played against the following schools; Northampton school for Girls, Brooke Weston Academy, Sir Christopher Hatton Academy and Bishops Stopford. The games were really tough and physical, not a game went passed without a bump or knock and our team bench was always present with an abundance of ice! The girls fought hard and play the best I have seen them, improving each game. Every single girl played their part in the team and we couldn’t have been without any of them. Poppy Waldron was also acknowledged by the officials and awarded a ‘passion’ wrist band.
The girls ended up winning 2 games and losing two. One of those loses being the overall winners - Northampton School for girls, who we found out all attended a Basketball club outside of school and play regularly!
The girls came a very impressive SECOND place, and secured the silver medals!!!!
They were a real credit to take out of school and worked so hard- Well done to all.
Squad:- Eleanor McConnell (Captain), Poppy Waldron (Captain), Phoebe Anderson, Nicole Adams, Emily Hinton, Lily Webb, Beth Coombs, Maddie Pritchett, Hope Gregory and Skye Roberts.
