Basketball News: December 2017 and January 2018

Our basketball players have been very busy playing matches before and after Christmas. The U16, U19 and 2nd year teams all recorded wins recently, so well done girls! Our U16s now progress to the semi-final stage of their competition. The U19s were unlucky to just miss out on a semi-final spot. Our 2nd year team still has a number of matches to play before reaching the quarter-final and semi-final stage. We wish them the very best of luck! The 1st year team will commence matches shortly. Here are some recent results.
