Young­sters in sporty ac­tion

Ayrshire Post - - Closure -

Auchin­leck Academy S4- 6 girl’s hand­ball team made their way up to Raven­scraig to take part in the Scot­tish fi­nals.

With all girls el­i­gi­ble to play for the next few years this was a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to get more ex­pe­ri­ence in the games.

They played their first game against Gir­van Academy and in a close en­counter they came away with a 1- 0 win. The girls then had mixed re­sults with wins against Bal­fron and Cumbernauld and loses against Our Ladu’s and Marr Col­lege which saw them fin­ish fifth.

Fifth in Scot­land is still a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment and as al­ways the girls were bril­liant on and off the court. Cap­tains Ai­ley Porter and Ab­bie Brown led the team well and the team looks for­ward to some re­venge games later in the year.

Top Goal scorer was Ab­bie Brown and Player of the tour­na­ment was Court­ney Gra­ham

Auchin­leck Academy se­nior boys’ bas­ket­ball team were re­cently vic­to­ri­ous in the Ac­tive Schools Com­pet­i­tive School Sport Cal­en­dar bas­ket­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

Eight schools en­tered and Auchin­leck man­aged to win every game to come out as over­all win­ners. They showed great team work, skills and sports­man­ship through­out and were well de­serv­ing of their vic­tory.

The points they earned for the school will be added to the school to­tal for the cal­en­dar at the end of the school year when all the events are com­pleted.
