Top results for school’s trio of sides

PONTELAND High School’s basketball teams have been high-flyers so far this season.

The under 14 and under 16 sides both finished top of their groups which covered the southern parts of Northumberland.

They each competed in two tournaments this term at St Benet Biscop High School. The under 14 team won seven out of eight games and the under 16s won eight out of eight.

These sides now advance to play the Tyne and Wear champions.

The under 15 team has been competing in the regional stage of the national league this term and finished second in the North East pool, having lost only one game.
