The Year 9 basketball team opened their league campaign with a 22-9 victory against Christ’s on Thursday 9 January. Following their impressive showing at the Borough Tournament, held at St Mary’s University before Christmas, the team shook off a fair amount of rust to run out convincing winners. The team defended stoutly, led by excellent on-ball pressure by Qerim on his debut and strong rebounding by Josh. Tainton attacked the basket well and showed an improving touch around the rim. They showed a lot of potential, and whilst the game at times resembled a cross between WWE and rugby, there is a lot to build on heading into a stretch of challenging fixtures. Please encourage your Year 9s to come to training on Thursdays after school to work on their fundamentals and fitness!

Team: Rokas, Taiton, Deolu, Kyron, Josh, Ermir, Jaydon, Noah, Qerim
