Greneway Middle School’s Year 7 basketball side were crowned champions at the age level in North Herts after beating Hitchin Boys’ Year 7 pupils 53-37 at Letchworth’s St Christopher School.
A topsy-turvy first quarter saw the lead change hands several times before Greneway held on to go ahead 16-12.
The game remained even in the second quarter as both sides scored eight points each, taking the scoreline to 24-20.
A motivational half-time team talk gave Greneway confidence to keep the pressure on in the second period and they responded by winning the third quarter 20-6, putting the overall score at 44-26.
Greneway were now 10 minutes away from the School’s 18th Year 7 title in 23 years.
