Youth Basketball League Semi-Finals

As many of you know, Basketball is a very popular sport with boys and girls alike at STACS.  Last Saturday I had the pleasure of being invited to watch the Youth Basketball League semi-finals which featured many of our students who play for Bromsgrove Bears and Frankley Falcons. The standard of play was exceptional and all the students showed how hardworking and talented they are and I was very proud to tell the people sat around me that these are the students I teach. The U13 Bromsgrove Bears team won the finals on the Sunday as did the U15 Frankley Falcons.  The U17 and U19 teams narrowly missed out on reaching the finals.  Our players were: Jayden,Bakaang, Tyrese, Boris, Luke, Melanie (the only girl on the team, an absolute inspiration and role model!), Nick, Cori, Jared, CJ, Panashe and Kai. A special mention goes to Nick who also won the YBL Chairperson’s Young Adult Special Recognition Award for not only his playing achievements but his refereeing accomplishments.
