Congratulations to the U16 girls basketball team that have reached the finals for the third consecutive year.  The team travelled to Suffolk to play County Upper School last Friday. The girls won 56-35.  The team then played again on Monday in the last 8 of the competition.  The winning team would play in the final fours of the national schools competition.  The girls were up against Northampton School for Girls, a team that we have beaten on two other occasions to get to the finals. Northampton are a strong side and came out the first quarter with an early lead.  The Greensward girls never looked back and a strong final three quarters made the score 70-46.  The team will now play in the finals at the University of East London (UEL) on Saturday 9 May.
