An Eastbourne school’s celebrating both their boys and girls Year 9 basketball teams becoming Sussex County Champions.
The teams from St Catherine’s College took on others from across the county, with the boys squaring up to Angmering School, who won last year and was a team St Catherine’s had never beaten before. They boys took the title 59-26.
Meanwhile, the girls faced St Pauls from Burgess Hill in their final – a team they have never played before. After a slow start, they went on to overcome their nerves and took the title 20-12.
Both teams now go through to the national knock out stages as Sussex winners. They will initially face qualifying teams from other schools in the south east, with the girls playing St John the Baptist School, Surrey and the boys, George Abbot School, Surrey.
