Tuesday 21st February saw Carre’s Grammar School face Chesterton School in the U14 Dynamic National Schools’ Competition, following their qualification as Lincolnshire County Basketball Champions.

The Carre’s team were in high spirits before the game and started well, matching the opposition throughout the first quarter. Kai Waller demonstrated his athleticism by driving to the basket and bringing his team mates into the game. Haydn Tear and Lewis Chessum also chipped in with valuable points, but Chesterton School edged the quarter 26-19. Unfortunately the high standard of performance in the first quarter was not replicated in the second quarter, leading to Chesterton School leading by 17 points at the half.

The Carre’s team started the third quarter with fresh enthusiasm and real desire to work hard defensively. It had been far too easy for the Chesterton players to find open looks under the basket and the Carre’s players knew that they were capable of so much more. A strong performance defensively led to the quarter being tied. Then came the fourth quarter and what a quarter it was. Carre’s adopted a full court press and were intent on stealing the ball high up the court to close the 17 point deficit. A couple of quick steals, followed by lay-ups lifted the Carre’s team and they went from strength-to-strength. Having scored 19, 11 and 14 points in the previous three quarters, the Carre’s tea went on to score a total of 48 points in the final quarter to win the game 92-79.

Special mention must go to Kai Waller who scored a phenomenal 71 points in the game, leading the team to victory. Hopefully the result encourages the Year 8 and 9 students who have not been training recently to work to regain their places in the squad.
