Year 8 Win Blackpool Schools' Basketball Tournament
Year 8 boys won the Blackpool Schools Basketball tournament, going through the competition unbeaten, winning all three games.
Against a very tall Armfield side they started off very slowly, finding it difficult to win the ball back. However once they started to pass the ball around they soon exploited weaknesses in the opposition running out 10-4 winners.
The second game was against Aspire, who provided a stern test despite losing their first game. Good defence by Henshall Flynn and Stima ensured Aspire were limited to four points and great shooting by Hesketh ensured an 8-4 victory.
It meant that a draw in the last game against St Georges would make St Mary’s champions. However they saved their best until last with a convincing victory 12-2, with some amazing shooting by Dygas.
A great team effort well done to Rodrigo Stima, Nicholas Henshall Flynn, Dominik Dygas, James Hesketh.
Thank you to the sixth form helpers who refereed and scored – David, Kyle and Dan and also to all the teams that took part.
