Todays Primary School League has been cancelled. All games will be rearranged after the Christmas holidays.
Thanks for all the support for the league as it provides a great opportunity for our primary kids to get into the sport of basketball.
Wolves made an excellent start to the game, convincingly winning the first quarter. Shooting was good and all members of the team got stuck in. At the other end of the court, defence was strong and with clear communication between the Wolves players, Kats struggled to get clear shots within the key. However, in the 3rd quarter the Kats made a come back due to a number of turnovers and Wolves lost some confidence which affected their shooting. The 4th quarter was much stronger for the Wolves who started to find their shots again, especially F.Troesjler, but Kats now had the momentum that took them into a clear lead. Wolves need to work on keeping performance consistent throughout the game to maintain pressure and secure a win. Final score was 61 – 38 to the Kats. Top scorer for the Wolves was F.Troesjler with 12 points.
The Wolves Girls Under 14s player Leah Stewart was last week named to represent Scotland in the Under 15 Squad going into next years international season. On top of this she has been named as one of two reserves on the Scotland Under 16 Squad, which will be competing at a European C level tournament next summer. This is made all the more special due to the fact that Leah is still only 12 years old, she will turn 13 at the turn of the year. This will mean that there will be a lot of basketball for Leah over the next year, with Wolves practice, Excellence in School Sports practice as well as Strength and Conditioning workouts and training, travelling and playing with two Scotland squads.
Luis Romero, the Under 16s National Squad Coach stated, 'Leah presented us with a rare dilema, she is so young but has so much talent and potential. Her inclusion into the Under 16 squad as a reserve will give her the opportunity to train in a tougher environment as well as travel and see what an international competition is like, without any pressure at this stage. This is a development opportunity and I personally wanted her in the squad to further her on going development.'
The Wolves are very proud of Leah and look forward to seeing her represent Scotland next summer.
