10 Nov U16 Basketball
The U16 Basketball team had their first ever fixture in a friendly against Greatfields on Friday 3rd November. Whilst some of the students play for clubs outside of school, they have had limited opportunity to practise as a squad and it took some time to find momentum in the first quarter.
Accuracy of passing and shooting improved significantly in the second quarter and we went ahead 16-15 at half time after two excellent 3 pointers were scored by Emmanuel. The boys fought hard to stay in the game but were unfortunately beaten in the end by a well drilled Greatfields side.
We look forward to the rematch in January and hope students take the opportunity to train for basketball on Wednesdays and Fridays with the RDF foundation in the sports hall.
