Players give all on court in basketball league

Basketball players from Highfields are enjoying slam dunk fun on the courts competing in the Junior NBA League.

Each school in the league is given an NBA team name - with the Highfields team being the Dallas Mavericks. Teams are now competing as part of a mini league with other schools from across the West Midlands for the chance to face opposition from Manchester and London later this year.

During a recent fixture at West Bromwich’s George Salter Academy, our Dallas Mavericks celebrated victory in games against Perryfields School and Phoenix Academy before losing to the host team.

Mr C.Brickwood, Head of PE, said: “It was a fantastic evening of basketball all of the students played their hearts out.”
