Well done to the Year 9 students who represented Oulder Hill at the County Basketball Finals at the Amechi Centre in Manchester. The boys were excellent and played four matches, of which they won two and lost two. They played the eventual winners Saddleworth High in their first group match, which they lost narrowly. The second match was against the champions of Salford, Swinton High School, which they won convincingly.
The third and key match was against the champions of Manchester, Trinity High School, who proved to be too athletic and strong for them on the day. Their final group game was against Golborne High School from Wigan who they convincingly beat to end the day on a really high note.
Many congratulations to the students involved: Babar Rashid, Matthew Greenwood, Damien Green, Jack Turner, Jordan Parkhill, Marcus Welsby, Ethan Creswell, and Thomas Booth.
Thank you to Mr Finc for accompanying the students on the day, and Mr Pullan and Mr Holt who have been running after-school basketball sessions which have given the students the chance to develop their skills and reach a good standard.
