IZ Basketball team defend their North West title

Keen shooting brings trophy reward repeat

Three victories and no defeats meant that our Inclusive Zone Basketball team successfully defended their North West title, at a tournament in Preston this week.

Wins over Woodchurch High School, Moor Park and Sir Tom Finney High School meant that the team of Umor Ali, Monsur Chowdhury, Nathan Phelan, Zion Dawson, Josh Yates and Isaac Gallier once again lifted the trophy.

Inclusive Zone Basketball combines the wheelchair and running games. The ordinary basketball court is divided into zones. Players who have mobility impairments play in the inner zone with running team-mates in the outer wing zones.

Teacher of PE Liam Roberts said, “This is a great competition, enabling students with all abilities to compete and gain an understanding of all parts of the game. The team was excellent in their performance and playing with respect. We are very proud of them and delighted to have won the competition once again.”
