A huge thank you to all the schools who attended the Basketball event last week at TMA. It was amazing to see 80 students all participating. They were all fantastic & played with excellent sportsmanship and enthusiasm.

The schools were separated in to two pools & the results of the pool games are below.

Pool 1 

Girls

St Francis - 3 points

East Ardsley - 6 points

Birchfield - 9 points

Asquith - 6 points

Pool 2

Girls

Hill Top - 8 points

Seven Hills - 5 points

Westerton - 8 points

Gildersome - 3 points 

Therefore with Westerton & Hill Top on the same points the number of baskets scored were calculated which meant Hill Top went through to the finals against Birchfield. The final game was close with Hill Top being crowned champions scoring 4 - 1. A huge well done.

Pool 1 

Boys 

St Francis - 3 points

East Ardsley - 7 points

Birchfield - 9 points

Asquith - 5 points

Pool 2

Boys

Hill Top - 7 points

Seven Hills - 7 points

Westerton - 7 points

Gildersome - 3 points

Pool 2 showed that 3 schools all finished on the same number of points so the number of baskets overall each school scored was how they could be separated. This meant that Westerton went through to the finals against Birchfield. The game was another fantastic final with Birchfield being crowned champions with a 4 v 2 win.

Thank you again for attending - 8 teams was fantastic!!
