Year 7 Girls - Basketball Champions!

Chingford PE Department would like to offer a massive congratulations to all girls involved in Chingford's emphatic win over Lammas in the Year 7 basketball final. A hard-fought contest ended in a 16-7 victory, a score line representative of our side's dominance not only on the day, but throughout the tournament as a whole. Jayda-Lea Lewis was voted by an independent panel as the final's MVP, a prestigious award that will stay with her throughout her time at Chingford. Many congratulations to Jayda-Lea!

Ms. Burridge, who led the side to glory in the absence of Ms. Culverhouse, was thrilled with the girls' collective performance.

'The team spirit amongst the girls was the winning factor in this match; they showed grit, determination and willingness to fight for their medals. They should be very proud of themselves.', Ms. Burridge stated. 'Let's hope they can carry this rich vein of form into next year's tournament!'.

These strong words of praise offered by Ms. Burridge came as a result of the team's resilience throughout the year - after going unbeaten for the entire season, the year 7 side finished strongly with some excellent performances in the knock-out stages. In keeping with the Chingford Foundation School ethos of hard work and determination, this fledgling young side will continue to work just as hard next year in the hopes of retaining their fully deserved title of champions!

The PE Department would also like to offer its congratulations to the year 10 girls team, who finished runners up in their tournament after a narrow defeat to basketball rivals Lammas. The game was lost in more than controversial circumstances, with Chingford scoring to tie the game in the dying seconds, only for the referee to rule out the basket for travel. Despite this, the girls can be extremely proud of their efforts throughout the season.
