On Wednesday 27th November, St. John’s were invited to a girls basketball tournament at Hayesbrook School. The atmosphere was incredible and our girls had very high expectations from others due to our success from the previous year. We played five matches, where we had the opportunity to qualify for the semi-finals. We dominated our first game and managed to win by a comfortable margin. Unfortunately, we lost the next two games to the teams which would end up being in the final. However, we did not make it easy for them and managed to push them to the very end. As the games progressed, we managed to win our final two games and really flourish by the end of the afternoon. Despite this, we were unable to make the semi-finals, however we were lucky enough to play a number of games after, where we were able to win a further two games! All in all, the girls worked amazingly well together and showed an amazing brand of team basketball. Which was remarkable, considering we only have one whole team practice session!
