London Youth Games – Basketball
Our basketball teams have had an outstanding season and this culminated with our team representing Richmond at the London Youth Games on Monday. The children were competing against 29 other boroughs and often against much larger schools. Playing in 3 on 3 format the children won 6 matches in succession to reach the final where they narrowly missed out on a gold medal to a three-form entry school from Newham.
We are so proud of our silver medal winning players, Tallulah, Rosie, Nuala, Max M, Max C and Oliver. Not only are they fantastic players but they were resilient and determined – truly remarkable ambassadors for our school. Thank you to all the children who were on the squad and who contributed to this victory and to Hassan Davies for all his hard work training the squad and on the day.
Thank you to Mrs Harrington and Thomas Magalhaes for helping us on the long journey and to Liam O’Connell for kindly providing the team with a brand new kit for the special event.
