The Y11 basketball team have played a number of league fixtures over the last week, aiming to bounce back from the disappointment of losing in the Birmingham Finals last year.

We began with a double fixture, playing both Bishop Challoner and Ninestiles at home, last Thursday. Both games resulted relatively straightforward victories, as did the match at Shenley on Monday - STACS relentlessly scoring 70 points to win the game by a massive 54 points!

Tuesday brought the crucial fixtures in another double-header at STACS, against the 2 strongest teams in the division - Kings Norton Boys and Colmers, the latter we had narrowly lost to in last year's final. The evening saw a large increase in quality from the previous games and between the three teams, possibly the best quality basketball I have ever seen at school level! STACS raised their game for the occasion, first seeing off Kings Norton Boys by a single basket with only 5 seconds remaining. The next game against Colmers saw us race into a 5 point lead by half time, but agonisingly fall short despite our best efforts, losing by just 5 points.

The boys have shown a fantastic attitude in the last week, winning with dignity and losing with grace. The squad should all be commended on their continued commitment to the sport, that has seen them have so much success during their time at STACS.

Squad list:
Kwaku, Kur, Richard, Mason, Ollie, Josh, Connor, Isaac, Darrel, Josiv
