Year 8 Basketball County Competition - The Brunts Academy

Year 8 Basketball County Competition

Today the students below attended the Nottinghamshire Year8/9 basketball competition at Nottingham Trent University. The students were against the top 9 schools across the county who had progressed to the competition following winning their district competition. The students despite losing all of their matches played extremely well as a team, fought for every ball in each game and had great team spirit. Regardless of the fact they only had the minimum 5 players and played every minute of court time, unlike other teams who had multiple substitutes. At the presentation at the end of the competition the girls were awarded the ‘Spirit of the games award’ for their endeavor resilience and commitment throughout the tournament.
