King Alfred’s Year 9 Basketball Team Are County Champions for 2nd Year Running!
Huge congratulations to the Year 9 COUNTY BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS who came back from being behind in the first quarter of the match played last week at Cherwell School to beat Cheney School convincingly and take the County Championship for the 2nd year running. The final result was 55 – 64.
Headteacher Jo Halliday had lunch with the team and coach Emma Frost before they left for the match. The team were full of praise for Miss Frost, a member of the PE staff at King Alfred’s Academy. One of them commented “Miss Frost has great confidence in us and has let us lead our own development as a team”. It’s a system that obviously works, with the team securing two County titles in a row and enjoying an unbeaten run of 21 games this season against both independent and state sector opposition.
Matt Bowler, Director of PE at King Alfred’s said: ”To win the County Basketball Championships twice in a row against stiff opposition is a brilliant achievement and testament to the team’s hard work in training and the excellent coaching from Miss Frost.”
