girls basketballOn Friday the 7th of November we played a game of girls’ basketball against St. Bernards. The scores were 38-24, unfortunately we lost but the whole team played exceptionally well considering we had no substitutes and we had to play the whole game. Amelia improved a lot with her defending and attacking and she ran her hardest throughout the game. Amalia was amazing at running and defending and she tried really hard with her shooting. Sayo and Nadine did a lot of shooting and Sayo also did a lot of running and defending. Nadine played really well when shooting and running. We all had a very fun and fair game. The other school had some really good players and Mr P gave the girls some really good advice and I would like to thank Mr P so much for coaching us. We all played exceptionally well on our last game.
