On Thursday 8th Feb the year 7/8 Basketball Team competed in the Ark Championships. They had a highly successful first day, where they finished second in the north regional event and qualified for the finals!
In the quarter finals, Pioneer showed their skills and confidently beat Ark Evelyn Grace 22 – 15. In the semi final Pioneer played a very strong Ark Elvin side and struggled in the first half going down by 10 points. Despite this set back Pioneer responded and had an excellent second half coming within 2 points of tying the game and had a shot hit the rim on the buzzer! Getting to the semi final stage of all the Ark Schools was an excellent achievement and is a credit to the dedication and talent this groups shows at training and lessons throughout the year.
We look forward to seeing more sporting success!
