Girls show great resilience and graciousness in tough basketball final

Published on 23/02/18

While our girls were unsuccessful in their bid for city-wide dominance in the U16s basketball final, we couldn't be more proud of the girls' resilience and graciousness in defeat.

Our scorers were Liome, Ellie and Amie and our most valuable player was Chloe. 

The resilience award went to Samiyah, as going into the final quarter, she said: "If we score 14 baskets in 7 minutes and they score none we can still win - we got this miss!"

The bright side award went to Emily, who said: "I know we didn't win but they are so nice, I'd like to be their friends."

The girls will be receiving a trophy and certificates for getting through to the finals.
