Annual Basketball Awards

2nd June 20

Report from Sean Gallagher, Head of Sport & Co-Curricular Activities

Whilst most students were taking a well-deserved rest during half term our Basketball team were in competition mode ready for our very first Virtual Quiz Evening. It was hugely pleasing to see almost all the boys present for the event, considering some students were thousands of miles away in their home countries.

The evening tipped off with us all critiquing the current state of our “lockdown locks” in which sadly, I think I won! The Quiz was a hard fought battle but there were three front runners who pushed each other all the way to a very tight finale. Ben Parry stayed cool under pressure winning by just 2pts followed closely by Julius and Hooman.

We then finalised the evening with our inaugural Virtual Award Ceremony with the winners listed below:

Most Valuable Player of The Year (as voted by the player’s): Jimmy
Coaches Player of The Year: Ben 
Most Improved Player of The Year: Hooman
