Our superbly talented Y6 Basketball Team today competed in Newcastle reaching the Semi Finals!
They were undefeated in the group stages stringing together an impressive run of results. They won 16-6 vs Gosforth East Middle School, 16-0 vs King Edwards, 18-4 vs. St John’s, 18-8 vs. Glynwood B and 18-2 vs. Mortimer Primary to advance to the final 16 teams in the tournament.
Here they beat Gosforth Junior Academy 4-0 to proceed to the Quarter Finals. In a tense match they battled through to win 4-0 vs. Wellfield Primary.
In the Semi Finals, in what was an extremely physical match we unfortunately lost 2-0 vs. Glynwood Primary School A Team.
Congratulations to the team, who were sadly representing Stanhope for the final time. It has been a pleasure over the last 3 years to watch you all develop skills, competitiveness, sportsmanship and flourish to become wonderfully talented pupils and athletes. I’ve been privileged to lead you to many events and see this.
I truly am so proud of you and all of the pupils who represent our school. They are a credit to Stanhope.
Congratulations once again. Mr Rogers.
