Year 3/4 Basketball Finals - 08/01/24

Happy New Year!

We kicked our sporting calendar for 2024 off with our basketball finals for Years 3 & 4 at The Angmering School. Fortunately, this was an indoor event so we sheltered from the unexpected snow! 

EPJS started the tournament against Chesswood Blue. During this game, the team started hugely positively and shot after shot was taken. Unfortunately, the accuracy was slightly off and just the one basket was scored. Chesswood quickly responded following this leaving our first game as a 2-2 draw.

In our next round of fixtures, EPJS came up against Thomas A Becket. Again, the team started strongly but could not get their noses in front. TAB soon started to find rhythm and scored a few well-worked baskets with EPJS scoring one in response. Second game 2-10. In our final game of the group, the children were rejuvenated after some time to practice. However, despite the team's best efforts the game finished 2-6 in favour of St Peter's Black.

With the given results, EPJS were in contention for 7th place - facing St Peter's Green. I was delighted to see the progress the team had made from the start as things started to click for the children and they ended up winning a close game 6-4. EPJS finished 7th in the Southern Area Finals and all children did themselves proud in representing their school!

Here's looking forward to a 2024 filled with sport!
