Year 8 pupils come in 2nd place in international basketball competition
Two Year 8 pupils came 2nd in an international basketball competition against 60 other teams. Liam and Aaqib are part of the under 14s basketball team for London United and attend regular training sessions at Alec Reed Academy along with teammates from other schools. They were selected by their coach to take part in the competition and felt overjoyed to have been selected and represent the team and also the Academy in Radom, Poland.
They played a fantastic game and came in 2nd place, losing first place by only one shot! The pair won trophies and Liam was voted in the All Stars team, which comprises of the best 5 players around Europe were born in the same year as him. They are inspired and motivated by their experiences so far and are thinking of taking up basketball at the Alec Reed Academy in Post 16. We are thrilled about their performance and look forward to see how they progress in the future!
