Basketball Comes to Christ the King!
On Wednesday 5th December 2018 the Year 12 and 13 Basketball team hosted a KCSP Basketball competition in our St Mary’s sports hall. The boys competed in 4 pool games against our Emmanuel site, Colfe’s School, Knights Academy and Bromley South East College.
Slam dunks, three pointers and offensive rebounds abounded as all five teams demonstrated a high level of skill and dedication. The closest fought match, perhaps unsurprisingly, was between the two Christ the King sites; unfortunately for us the Emmanuel team edged the game by one basket.
After the final basket has been slammed, the Knights Academy team had triumphed; fittingly enough as their name is closest sounding to a professional team.
We would like to thank all players for their hard work and dedication in representing the college and staff in helping us prepare.
They compete in a range of sports from football to athletics and is always very competitive!
