The Year 12 girls basketball team have played their first fixtures in the Corby and Kettering District League. The Brooke Weston Elites, who train every Wednesday afternoon, won 8 - 4 against Ise Community College but were beaten 16 - 8 by the Southfields side.
Miss Feeley has been coaching the Elites for the last two terms. She said: 'The girls were really strong and gave a great performance for their first match out. The crucial thing in basketball is positioning and tactics. We have also done a lot of work on shooting and accuracy. The team did well to win one of their matches as it is the first time they have played together in the league; it's an encouraging start.'
Emma Jarrold-McCardie said: 'It's fun, we work together as a team on our fitness, do a training session and finish off with a match.'
