Rawlins Academy stand out as they make it 3 out of 4 wins from the Team Leicestershire Basketball Finals

Yesterday saw the girls basketball finals took place at the Leicester Arena, with 8 teams going head to head in the finals featuring year 7,8,9 and KS4 girls.

There was much to see on the night from high flying 3 pointers to jostling duels amongst the rivals, and even Leicester Riders player, Harrison at the forefront to witness the teams in action!

Rawlins won 3 out of the four finals, proving to be strong talent throughout the age groups. Belvoir Priory won the Year 8 finals in a well contested battle with Lutterworth College.

All results and MVP of the finals can be seen below:
