Double Delight for Albany Basketball teams

For the second time this term our boys basketball teams have been leading the way in Chorley. This time it was the turn of the Year 8 boys team who were crowned district champions at a tournament on Wednesday 8th February. Their performance was even more impressive as they won the competition without conceding a single point.

The team beat Bishop Rawstorne 24 – 0, followed by 6 – 0 victory over Holy Cross to clinch the trophy. Head of PE, Martin Peacock, said “The Year 8 boys have worked hard during lessons time to develop their skills and teamwork in this new sport since arriving at Albany. They are now a very competent team who are very keen to develop further and next year progress into the Lancashire cup. Well done!”
