Sporting Success!

8th October 2018
After missing the first week of fixtures, Sampford were playing catch-up in both their basketball and netball league competitions which accumulate points over four weeks.
In basketball, the children did brilliantly to learn the rules and structure of the game with some wonderful individual performances and a really great team ethic - with players constantly encouraging each other. Over the 7 games played, Sampford won 5 - scoring 54 points in the process - drew 1 and lost 1 which was a fantastic start to the competition as the children had not played a game of basketball before!
Over on the netball courts, the experienced players from last year helped out and encouraged the 'rookies' and turned in some amazing performances. After drawing their first match, they got up-to-speed quickly and found their stride winning 4 and only losing 1 - a great start to the competition.
We look forward to the next round of games in November - wish us luck!
