Four basketball teams from St. Bede’s took part in the Newcastle Eagles Hoops4Health tournament on Thursday. The children had a wonderful day and displayed admirable sportsmanship throughout.
Preceding the competition, the children had enthusiastically trained at lunchtimes; their preparation was rewarded with lots of skilful performances during the competition. Delightfully, three of our teams reached the knockout stages, which led to an exciting all St. Bede’s Play-off final.
After a several outstanding displays one of our teams qualified for the District Finals Night, which will take place at Sport Central in Newcastle, on Friday 12th January (5.30). This promises to be a fantastic opportunity for the players, who will play at the home of the Newcastle Eagles in front of 3000 people!
Thank you to the parent helpers who supported our children so positively, and crucially enabled us to enter so many teams. Well done to all of the players who flourished at the event; Miss Moffett and I were proud of you all!
