The U16 team completed their four year, four trophy run in the District competition with a play-off win against Archbishop Holgates on Thursday evening. The team played some fantastic basketball from the start to run out comfortable winners. The team will now go on to represent York in the County competition next Monday.
The U13 team lost their first game of the season in the district final on Tuesday. The team went behind early on in the first half but came back strongly to run All Saints close in the final seconds. Well done to the team for the progress they have made this year.

On Wednesday afternoon we welcomed teams from All Saints and St Peter’s to play against our U18’s. Our team played incredibly well, fought hard and showed amazing amounts of resilience and tenacity – they won both games, 12-7 and 14-13 respectively.
St Olave’s came to Bootham on Thursday afternoon with 4 teams – U12 A&B and U13 A&B. A great spectacle, with over 50 girls playing on our courts – 3 out of 4 matches ending in victory for our girls. U12 A’s won 6-4, the B’s lost 3-2, the U13’s both proved too strong for their opposition and had very convincing wins. Well done to all who played.
