On Thursday 22nd September, The Prescot School’s Year 11 basketball team took part in the annual Knowsley Basketball Championship at Kirkby High School, looking to retain their title. The Year 11 team took last year’s form into this year, by winning all three games in sensational style. This is the teams third championship win in four years.
Nick, Liam, Matthew, Dean, Jamie, James, Tom and Anthony all played a massive part in ensuring The Prescot School came back as victors. The team dominated every game as they went undefeated on their way to championship glory. The team also showed brilliant defensive and offensive skills as they only conceded 5 points in the whole tournament, and scored a massive 34 points, which laid the foundations for their convincing victory.
All the students who took part were a credit to themselves and the school, with a real show of class and sportsmanship throughout the competition. We wish them luck going forward, as they will represent Knowsley in the Merseyside Basketball Championships, in the near future.
