Last Wednesday, some Year 6 pupils went to the High Peak Basketball finals at New Mills Leisure Centre. We took two teams and played Fairfield and Harpur Hill, both of whom also had two teams. New Mills A team won two games, drew one and lost one. Unfortunately, New Mills B team lost all four of their games.
New Mills A team then played in the 3rd place playoff and were beaten by Fairfield in the last ten seconds of the game
New Mills B team came 6th overall.
The competition was very strong and Mr Worsley said he had never seen such good basketball from any school in all his time at New Mills School.
Mrs Fisher gives her “Players of the Match” awards to Joel for a fantastic individual performance in the face of adversity, and Nathan for staying positive and being gracious in defeat.
