Year 5/6 Basketball Team

Wednesday 2nd March

The basketball team travelled to The Carlton Academy for the Gedling District Competition. Having finsihed 1st and 2nd for the last two years the pressure was on the team to continue the success. After a slow start, losing 2 out of their forst 3 games, thew team found their form and progressed through to the final. The team played their best game so far and were leading 4-0 with around a minute left. Unfortunately the opposition, All Hallows, scored the 2 baskets they required to send the game into over time. Aftera further 2 minutes the teams still couldnt be seperated so it was agreed both teams would take 2 free throws. All Hallows secured the victory scoring one of theirs whilst both of ours missed.


It was immensely pleasing to see how far the team had progressed during the afternoon and although we were happy to have finished second, we were also a little disappointed we hadnt held onto to the lead.


Well Done Team AMPS
