A strong U14 girls’ basketball travelled to Inspire Suffolk to represent the western area in the county finals. TGS were drawn against Sir John Leman High School in the semi finals. The starting 5 started the match very strongly having listened to the tactics and executing the skills very well. TGS were up 21-2 by the end of the first quarter. The team playing some great basketball pushed throughout the 2nd,3rdand 4th quarter and Sir John Leman did not know how to handle the power, pace and agility of the TGS team. Final Score TGS 57 – 11 Sir John Leman, placing TGS into the county final.
The Final saw TGS paired with Northgate High school, not only 2 great teams, but this game was for the bragging rights between friends when they meet at Ipswich basketball! A completely different proposition faced the team in this final, however again with some great defensive display from Lucy Cowling. The offensive displays came from Ella Pearson, Anna Bruce and Cameron Taylor-Willis. 4 very tight quarters saw some great basketball from both teams; however, TGS created more opportunities, though they were struggling to convert these regularly, until the last quarter where all shots ended up through the hoop. A fantastic match and a great performance TGS winning 40 – 32. Next half term the team plays against a Norfolk school in the regional round.
