Last week our S1 basketball team won their first match as an ‘S1 only’ team. They beat Bridge of Don Academy 19:6 points. The team worked brilliantly and were led by their captain Lance and the top point scorer and ‘player of the match’ for sheer determination was Dakota.
The S2 team also played brilliantly, but unfortunately lost their game, against a very strong defensive team, by only 4 baskets.
The S1 and S2 basketball team recently played their first game against Westhill Academy this. For their first game, the team played so well, coached by their coach, William, and their captain Lance. The teams defending skills were excellent and their attitude was exceptional. The team kept the score even through out the match and were eventually defeated by only 5 points. The school are so proud of this young talented team, and we can’t wait to see more from them as they grow in confidence and improve their match play.
