Basketball update - posted 8th Nov

We took two teams from Year 7 and 8 who played there first games of the year in last Thursdays development competition and competed well against some well organised schools/players.

For most it was a tough learning experience, playing against tall, athletic boys from other areas of the city was very different to playing against other boys in PE lessons! Our teams came 3rd and 4th on the day having had to play each other in the final match!

Our y7 and 8 girls football team played there first competitive games yesterday in the Liverpool City 7-a-side competition.

We entered two teams, ‘Team Caitlin’ (Keegan) and ‘Team Erin’ (Kirlew) - our two superstar 6th formers. Both teams competed brilliantly. Team Caitlin only narrowly missed out making it to the semi finals on goal difference. Team Kirlew also battled well throughout against much more physical and stronger teams. The highlight was Molly Mullis saving two penalties in the same game, one being the last kick of the game to draw against Calderstones 0-0.
