UALS - Year 8 Basketball Champions!

The Year 8 Basketball team from UALS has brought great pride to the school this year by clinching the title of South Lincolnshire Basketball Champions.


Throughout the journey to the final, the team engaged in five intense fixtures. The initial match against Spalding Grammar was an end to end game resulting in a 23-22 victory for UALS. Subsequently, facing off against UAH, the team secured a commanding 40-18 win, with standout performances from Josh Taylor and Alfie Clifton. The third encounter with Spalding Academy ended impressively at 36-10 in favour of UALS. With two crucial games remaining, the team felt the pressure, knowing that two more wins would propel them to the final.

The trip to Bourne Academy resulted in a resounding 20-0 triumph, while the decisive match against Bourne Grammar concluded with a convincing 32-8 victory. Advancing to the final, the Year 8's confronted Cowley Academy. Demonstrating their skill and determination, UALS emerged triumphant with a final score of 30-21, claiming the championship title.

 Mr Smith is extremely proud in the way the pupils conducted themselves whist representing the school. A special mention to Alfie Clifton in the way he went above and beyond by helping coach in practice sessions.

We look to take this momentum forward into next year’s round of fixtures.
