Our Y4 Basketball team have become the 'Hotshots' Champions, winning through in a very tough tournament.  They played 3 games, with very little rest in between, winning all of them and qualifying for the final.  We came up against a very strong Stradbroke team, and at half-time our boys had managed to get a four point lead.  Despite our girls playing brilliantly, and hitting the rim and the backboard more times than we could count, the Stradbroke girls managed to pull the scores level, which meant Sudden Death - next score wins.  After what felt like an eternity, and again doing everything possible but score, the girls came off for the boys to have another go.  After another age, we managed to finally score a basket.

It was an amazing end to a fantastic evening.  Some of our girls managed to score more points individually than other teams combined, and as always it was a pleasure to bring such a sporting bunch out to represent the school.

Many thanks to all the parents who made it to support the teams, and thanks to Mr Hanks for giving up his evening to support the event.
