Thursday 23rd February saw Carre’s Grammar School face Nottingham Academy in the U12 Dynamic National Schools’ Competition. This was the first year that Carre’s had entered the U12 competition and the boys had been working hard in training, with the goal of qualifying for the National Finals.

Carre’s started with Archie Russell, Angus Taylor, Archie Sodeau and Henry Wicks. The team got off to a quick start and led Nottingham Academy by 9 points at the end of the first quarter. Carre’s had established a 15 point lead at one point in the first quarter, before Nottingham Academy closed the game to finish the quarter 19-10. Archie Russell led Carre’s scoring with 10 points. The second quarter began with Xander Pottinger, Harry Richardson, Dylan Crichton and Jake Henderson on the court, and they continued where the first quarter team left off. Dylan Crichton demonstrated his ability to get free in the painted area, compete for rebounds and scored 10 of the team’s 15 second quarter points. Carre’s led 34-17 at the half.

 

 

The 3rd quarter started with the same team that took the court in the first quarter and the impressive team performance continued throughout the next 10 minutes. The team were encouraged to focus on their defensive effort in the third quarter, as means of developing their all-round performance, and the team didn’t disappoint. Nottingham Academy were limited to scoring a total of 4 points in the quarter, while Henry Wicks scored 8 of the team’s 16 points. In the final quarter, the team were intent on finishing the game strongly and had the intention of scoring more than 70 points. Harry Richardson and Dylan Crichton continued to grow into the game and demonstrated their ability to challenge for rebound before scoring a total of 10 points each.

A fantastic performance by the team in their first National League fixture, particularly against a basketball academy. The team continue to develop with each training session and fixture and now look forward to playing against Tuxford Academy on Wednesday 8th March. MVP was awarded to Dylan Crichton but, in truth, it could have been awarded to any of the team for their overall performance.
