On Thursday 1st December the Year 11 Basketball team went to Morley for the new South Leeds Basketball Rally. Unfortunately two Schools dropped out at the last minute and it was left to ourselves, Morley and Rodillian to battle it out for the honors of South Leeds School Champions. The first match was against our nearest rivals Rodillian, At 8 -2 down with two minutes to go all looked lost but the introduction of Jake Ward turned the game on its head and led to the team winning 12-8 (Jake Ward even slam dunking the winning points). The lads had a rest whilst they watched Morley demolish Rodillian in the second game. For our final match against Morley Royds we changed our game plan so that we defended deep and looked to hit Morley on the break. During the first half the tactics worked well but in the second half we became under increasing pressure and even the introduction of star player Jake Ward could not change the result of Morley winning 24-12. The lads were a credit to the School and worked exceptionally hard, the team was: Matthew Boucher, Hamish Mcintyre, Harjeevan Kloay, Jake Ward, Ryan Beech, Ben Andrew.
