Basketball squad battle against Barking Abbey
Marshalls Park’s Year 10 girls made an impressive start to the new basketball season this week.
The Romford pupils played their opening fixture of the 2013/14 academic year and were thrown in at the deep end against Barking Abbey, a school reknowned for its basketball ability.
Marshalls took a relatively inexperienced team, with some members having hardly played, and worked hard throughout.
But Abbey’s commitment and dedication to training paid off as they took an early lead and dominated the action on their way to a big win.
Nonetheless, Lyndsay Whitley praised the efforts of the visiting squad, saying: “There were some impressive efforts from the Marshalls Park team, with the Year 10s performing well and Hilda Allan showing some real potential. Well done girls!”
Marshalls Park: Emily Street, Emily Dempsey, Ellie Noble, Sydnie Barnes, Ellis Appleyard, Molly Egan, Hilda Allan, Dayna Guinn, Chloe Legrand, Simran Bajwa, Zoe Fairbarn, Amber Jarrett, Imogen Tisbury.
