Ryedale School have won both the year 7 and year 8 Scarborough and district basketball tournaments. The year 7s, led well by Bailey Crossland, met St Augustine’s in the semi-final of their tournament, winning a tight game 9-5, with Marcus Gatenby performing well under the basket, finishing off some strong moves. Then they met a strong Scalby team in the final. Both sides cancelled each other out with some strong defending but Dougie Brewster-Brown led some fast breaks to take the game away from Scalby in the closing stages, with Ryedale eventually winning the final 19-10.
The year 8 team dominated Graham School in their first game. Some quick passing and strong rebounding led to a 104-6 victory, with George Stead and Jacob Barbour playing well. They took this form into the final against Malton, winning the game 51-16. Lewis Garbutt, Will Jeffels and Jake Edwards played particularly well in the final. Harry Coldbeck picked up the trophy as winning captain.
