Basketball SILVER medalists
Following our success of winning our group in the North School qualifying section of the Ashford Primary Schools' Basketball competition, Challock's Y6 squad of 8 returned to the North School for the Ashford Finals, playing against the four other group winners: Kingsnorth, Lady Joanna Thornhill, and two Furley Park teams.
We started with a victory over Lady Js, going 4-1 with some excellent movement around the court and creating several chances which the team put away. We then played Kingsnorth, winning 2-0, taking the few chances in a 7-minute game, yet holding up in our defence particularly strongly.
We then played the eventual champions, Furley Park 2, who snuck a 2-1 win after we levelled the game at 1-1. We then played Furley Park 1, who took the lead, but again we levelled 1-1. With time running out, we tried to get the decisive score, but it was not to be, finishing in the draw.
With 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, Challock took the silver medal, an incredible achievement as our school continues to deliver in sporting competitions in Ashford against often-larger schools and excellent teams. All credit goes to the squad of Elliott, Puck, Zach, Harry A, Oliver, Drew, Ella and Callie.
Well done our Challock Stars!
