After winning the Year 7 Girls District Basketball Tournament our team were looking forward to their next challenge. We travelled to Lings Forum on Tuesday 15th Jan to compete in the County Final.
Sponne’s first game was against Wollaston Secondary School and was our first convincing win of the day with a score line of 27-4 to Sponne. Next up was Prince William School, again we took an early lead with superb shoots from CA and PB, but after a small come back from the Oundle based School, Sponne continued to impress and finish strong, final score was 18-9 to Sponne. Our final game of the day was predicted to be a much tougher game; we were up against the reigning champions from the last 5 years, Northampton School for Girls. The girls once again took an early lead in quarter 1 only to have NSG come back during quarter 2 and 3; we started the final quarter at 12-12. Sponne’s team really pulled together and demonstrated how their grit and determination had got them so far and sored to a 20-16 victory.
County Champions and off to Regionals!! Watch this space.
