East Borough are Maidstone and Mid-Kent Basketball Champions!
On Wednesday 28 November EB took a squad of players to the finals of the Maidstone and Mid-Kent Basketball competition. The previous week we had qualified together with Headcorn Primary School for the chance to represent our district in the Kent Finals. The other schools to qualify were Palace Wood and St Michael’s. Each team played each other to decide the winners and after three close fought and physically demanding games we came out on top, winning all our matches.
Palace Wood were beaten 10-6, then Headcorn were defeated 8-4 and finally we played St Michael’s and after going behind for more than half the match we came out in front also 8-4. Once again, as was the case last week, this was a true squad effort with everybody contributing from our starting ‘five’ to our subs, well done to everyone, the Kent Final will be early in the new year.
The squad were: Lauren, Lilianna, Olivia, Josh, Zac, Jake, Jamie and Toby. Many thanks also to parents for lifts and support.
East Borough fifth in Maidstone and Mid-Kent Sportshall Athletics Competition!
On Tuesday 27 November a squad of 18 children went to take part in the above competition at Maplesden Noakes School. Eleven schools were represented in a tournament that lasted all afternoon and required each of our 18 children to take part in four events, two track and two field. There was a variety of running races and obstacle events, while in the field there were jumping and throwing competitions. This was an extremely busy (and noisy) afternoon at the end of which we came fifth. There were several noticeable performances from our children, particularly in the running with both our girls and boys winning their races.
The squad were: Kubra, Lauren, Hannah, Isabella, Millie, Lucy, Megan, Lilianna, Rameesah, Jay, Toby, Christian, Dylan, Jake, Josh, Oliver, Hugo and Ben. Many thanks to parents for help with lifts to and from the venue.
