Girls Basketball Success

Congratulations to our Open Girls Basketball team who won the basketballscotland Open Girls Plate on Tuesday 13th March against George Heriots. Progressing this far in the competition was a first for both teams and in itself a great achievement for all. The final score was 45 : 20.

Girls Basketball Team 2018

The girls did amazingly well, working and communicating as a team putting everything they have learned in training sessions into practice. Listening to each other as well as their coach Tom Griffin they have each developed into more confident individuals and team players. They have worked hard this year to integrate new players and this has really paid off. They approached the final with the right attitude and they all played well and showed great respect to all other teams and officials throughout the competition. We are very proud of them.
