Oakhill 2nd
Oakhill 2nd

Always a popular event, this year saw 12 teams take part in the fun basketball event. Aimed to let children play a sport they have not played much of before, each team needed to have 2 boys and 2 girls on court at all times.

The teams were split into two groups and played all of the other teams in the group. After that the top two teams from each group went into the semi-final with the other teams playing friendly games.  In the first semi-final, Oakhill played Simonstone (who narrowly qualified on points difference) and Springhill played Gisburn.  Oakhill and Gisburn both won their matches to meet in the final and Springhill and Simonstone played off for third place medals.  It was a close final which could have gone either way but in the end Gisburn won with Oakhill second and Simonstone third.  Thanks must go to Oakhill for hosting the event and to their students who officiated.
