TEAM BULLS - MARCH 2019
The Carnarvon Bulls took part in their final school round-robin last Thursday. They played against St Wilfrid’s and The Good Shepherd primary schools.
The Bulls had some key players missing due to a football fixture, however, the players who attended worked incredibly hard as a team, passing, moving and scoring. Their defending was awesome too. This led to two huge victories and the best team performance of the season.
On other basketball achievements, Lily Gibbs and Cameron Markham were both selected to represent the county squad in the regional tournament. Both were amazing ambassadors of the school, playing really well with great attitude. Furthermore, Cameron has been selected to represent the East Midlands in the national tournament against the best in the rest of the country. At this tournament, Cameron will be playing in front of England coaches, trying to fight for a space on the England development programme pathway! Best of luck Cameron!!

FINAL BULLS BLAST - MARCH 2018
“Two exciting games demonstrated by our fantastic Bulls Team were played at St Wilfrid’s in Calverton on Tuesday 13th March. Our final fixture of the season was played by storm, creating an electric atmosphere. The entire team displayed individual skills and cohesive teamwork, making the whole experience a basketball blast!! Our referee, Coach Jimmy Smith, spoke about how much our team had improved since September. Winning both our games made our re-scheduled match really worthwhile. The support from all our parents has been amazing, so a great big thanks to all of them. A special thanks to Sarah Tyler for match scoring (even without her glasses)”.
