Basketball Team Undefeated for Two Years
The team beat Bishop Stopford School yesterday which meant they were crowned league champions for the second year running. It follows their recent success in the district tournament which pits five of the best teams in the area against each other. KSA won three and drew one:
KSA v Bishop: 16-7
KSA v Latimer: 8-8
KSA v CBA: 20-4
KSA v Prince William: 12-4.
Latimer lost one of their games which meant KSA won the tournament.
The team, which started playing together in Year 8, comprises Tom Martins, Balazs Komarniczky (missing from photo), Bradley Harris-Bruce, Harry Camozzi, Mason Hoath, Joe Edwards and Dennias Muswere.
PE teacher Michael Oldershaw said: "Every year they get better and better - they're the most successful basketball team we've had.
"Some of the players practise every night in the sports hall. Two of them play for the Northampton Nets so the rest of the team trains hard to get up to their standard. The dedication and attitude of all the players is what makes the team so good."
As a reward for their efforts, the team is going to watch the Harlem Globetrotters at the NEC.
