LBBD Basketball Competition

DBJA Basketball Teams

On Thursday we took 2 teams to Eastbury School to compete in the Borough Basketball Competition. 25 schools took part but only 10 can go through to the final.

Team “Blue Shorts” had 5 games, won 4 and drew 1, this made them joint top in their pool.

Team “Black Shorts” had 4 games, won 2, drew 2, this put them into 2nd place in their pool.

Both teams made the final! – wooo Hoooo ๐Ÿ˜„ The final will be held after 1/2 term.

Both teams have given up most of their lunchtimes to train & it certainly paid off…..Well done; Jessica, Nelson, Elliott, Emmanule, Kieron, Precious, Basilio, Lamina, Louie & Olomachi.

Bring on the final……..
