This year’s basketball tournament for girls was held at Testbourne (22nd January). Harrow Way, Test Valley, Rookwood and wellington all brought teams to take part. There were 3 pools within the competition.
There were only 2 year 9 teams however this did not stop the Testbourne girls getting stuck in. They played a full 4 quartered game against Wellington. It was 3 a side and Abi, Beau, Maddie and Ailsa all rotated on and off the court at the appropriate time. The girls went 8 nil down to begin with but once they got use to each other’s moments and style of play they started to fight back and started to score basket after basket. The final score was 38 -34 to Testbourne. Well done girls a great performance!
The other two pitches had mixed year 7 and 8 teams. Lottie, Georgie and Eva played together on Court 1. They won their game against Rookwood, drew against Test Valley and lost against Wellington and Harrow Way. The girls came 3rd overall.
On Court 2 Ruby, Esme and Katie played together and worked so hard throughout the games. None of the girls had played basketball before so this was a great learning experience for them. They lost their first 3games but then dug deep to come out on top against Test Valley. This led to them finishing 4th overall.
Well done to all the girls that took part.
