Antony Gell Open Basketball Tournament
On Wednesday the 1st of February Eyam A Team – Fabian, Jacob, Daniel, Seb, Grace, Maddie and Arthur went to play in an Open Basketball Tournament at Antony Gell school. We went with Mr Wright, Mrs Gilbertson and Lucas a Sports Leader from Lady Manners. It was an open competition against other schools in North Derbyshire!
Eyam A team played all the other teams in their league, we tried our best to show the other schools that we were fantastic players. We played 4 matches, winning 2 and drawing 2. Lots of brilliant goals were scored including Fabian’s explosive backwards no looker shot in the first 10 seconds of one match! Grace C also scored some amazing goals. We scored enough goals to come second in our league just 2 points behind the winners! In addition we were awarded the ‘Spirit of the Games cup’ for determined sportsmanship and real effort to do our best.
We all had a great time including the teachers! “It was very thrilling, challenging, amazing and I was so happy when we found out that we had come second!” explained Maddie.
The six Sports Award values of passion, self belief, respect, determination, honesty and teamwork were very much in evidence and the whole team worked so well to tackle each new game with gusto – super work Eyam Team!
