The South Tyneside Hoops 4 Health Basketball Competition finals took place on Friday 18th January. Eight of our children with their families braved the cold and travelled after school to the Newcastle Eagles arena for a very exciting event.
The semi-finals took place before the Eagles played against Manchester Giants, Mortimer were drawn against East Boldon and at full time the score was nil:nil. A nail biting decider then took place with three children from each team having a shot at the basket. Only one went in and it was Mortimer that scored.
During half time, Mortimer played in the finals against Holy Trinity. Unfortunately the opposition proved too strong for us. Our children thoroughly deserved their second place and were excellent ambassadors for the school.
