Kate and Connie compete for Wales

Year 9’s Kate Floyd and Connie Wood this past weekend represented their country at Basketball, playing for the U14 Girl’s squad at an international competition in Gibraltar. After a strong showing the Welsh side finished 2nd in the tournament.

Both Kate and Connie began playing competitive Basketball when they joined the school team at the start of Year 7. They arrive at school early every morning to train daily and then carry over that same dedication and growth mindset to their school work as outstanding pupils. In 2016 they helped lead the school to its first National Basketball Girls KS3 Championship. Along with playing for the school both are valuable members of the county team, the Vale Vipers. Well done Connie and Kate!
