Spalding High School’s under-14 basketball team attended the county finals for both boys and girls.

Three girls teams from across Lincolnshire went to the event after winning their area leagues.

First, the girls played St George’s Academy, Sleaford, and won 6-4 in a very closely-contested match.

The second match was against Priory Ruskin Academy, Grantham, and the Spalding team played some exceptional basketball by winning 16-2.

It fell to match officials to nominate the ‘most valuable player of the competition’ with the accolade going to the High School’s Emmie Gittins.

The team will now go on to represent Lincolnshire in the regional basketball finals in February.
