The fresh Year 7 team took to the basketball court with enthusiasm and professionalism last week to face St Richard Reynolds School in their second match of the season. As a new group, some with little basketball experience previously, they showed some excellent promise in their movement and teamwork on court which progressed and developed throughout the game.
