Basketball Champions

It became a double winning week at Howbridge Church of England  Junior School, as they were crowned NW Essex Basketball Champions on Friday. The regional finals took place at Braintree College and the Witham school faced the best schools from the Braintree, Halstead and Hedingham area. Unperturbed, the team started strongly winning their first two games convincingly. After a draw with Beckers Green, Howbridge had to win the final game and with two baskets in the final two minutes by new Mexican pupil Patricio Prieog Almanares, the team were victorious. Each player was presented with a gold medal and will represent the region in the Essex Finals in Harlow in January. Coach Damon Howlett stated, “The children were amazing. I’ve never seen them play so well, and they deserved to win. We are all so proud.”
