Feb 15, 2019Latest News, Sport

Last night Mrs Donaldson was lucky enough to accompany the year 5/6 basketball team to the Gateshead cluster schools finals at Cardinal Hume. In our first game the team secured a very impressive 10-0 victory against St Peters. For the second game, the team came up against tough competition in St Marys but still came out on top with a 3-1 win. For our final group game we were again successful against Carr Hill with a 6-0 victory. In the semi final we came out victorious in a very tight game with Glynwood B team meaning we had made the final!
In the final the whole team played out of their skin and never gave up until the final whistle. Unfortunately we lost 3-2 against Glyn

wood A team although this still meant we were silver medalists!! This was a fantastic achievement considering there were 42 teams in the whole competition. Also the team not only played extremely well their whole attitude and sportsmanship was exemplary and this was commented upon by other teachers and coaches.

Well done team Dunston Hill!
