Big Wood secured the Year 9 Boys Basketball title last night after a hard fought series of games in the Finals Play Offs at the Wildcats Arena.
Defending their crown from Year 8 Big Wood were made to work hard in their semi final against Bluecoat and trailed 4 - 1 at half time. A stern team talk at half time from Mr Pitman refocused the team and they eventually won through 14 - 8.
In the second semi final Ellis Guilford were hard pushed by Nottingham Academy, eventually securing their place in the final with a 14 - 11 win.
The final was an end to end affair in the early stages with teams trading baskets but Big Wood held their nerve and composure and took the title with a 17 - 14 score.
Nottingham Academy recovered well from their semi final to take the bronze medals with a 12 - 8 victory over Bluecoat.
Big Wood now progress to the County finals on 27th February.
