U16 Girls Basketball are Regional Runners-up

U16 Girls Basketball are Regional Runners-up

Sports News

The girls beat Manchester 20-29 in their first game, with Katie Shimmons, Zoe Parker and Megan Stokes running the game and leading the scoring. Some tough defence and strong rebounds from Ruby, Beth, Chloe, Sam, Jess, Isobel and Georgia ensured the opponents score was kept to a minimum.

This lead the girls to the final against Stockport – where the winner would be named as regional champions. Trinity who were representing Stockport were a strong team with a bench full of scoring threats. Tottington struggled to stop them from scoring in the first quarter and they ran some good fast breaks resulting in Tottington being 15 points down at half time. The girls continued to play strong defence and with some great baskets from Zoe and Katie, the scoring gap closed. However, Trinity stepped it up a gear in the final quarter, and Tottington looked tired – and the game finished 42-23, with Tottington gaining the ‘Regional Runners Up’ title.

Massively proud of the girls for their fantastic performance.
