MERIDIAN School’s Year 10 basketball team beat HBS 49-22 to reach the Stevenage and North Herts School League finals.

In every quarter Meridian were leading the scoring, with Gus Rees top scoring by hitting 12 baskets alone.
It was an all round good performance and a result good enough to send Meridian to the finals.
