Danesholme Junior Academy

Year 4/5 Basketball

The Year 4/5 Basketball team did really well to clinch a third place finish at the Take 6 tournament. There was some excellent basketball played by the girls and boys throughout the whole tournament.


In the first game Danesholme managed to beat Warmington primary 5-1. In the second round of games Danesholme won 2-0 against Oundle primary school. Onto the third game and Danesholme managed to run out 6-0 winners against Glapthorn although in the final game the children found it difficult against the overall winners Little Stanion losing 8-1. This minor set back didnt knock the childrens confidence as they still managed to make it through to the 3/4 play off beating Titchmarsh 7-0.
