Always a popular event, this year there were twenty teams entered into the basketball competition. We decided to run 4 separate competitions, one for each group so the teams were split into four groups of five and each played all of the other teams in their group.
The games were competitive from the start with every team playing their hardest and some great team and individual performances on show.
The group positions were as follows:
|Group 1||Group 2||Group 3||Group 4|
|1st||St Bartholomew’s A||St Bartholomew’s B||Benjamin Hargreaves A
|Benjamin Hargreaves B
|2nd||St Anne and St Josephs B||St Anne and St Josephs A
|Peel Park B||Peel Park A|
St Wulstan’s A were awarded the “Spirit of the Games” prize for good attitude, team work and enthusiasm.
Special thanks must go to all the teachers who accompanied the teams for getting their teams organised and in the correct places so efficiently and also to Accrington Academies basketball team for refereeing.
