Recently we shared our Year 7 Basketball team's incredible four-in-a-row winning record. We are now proud to announce that following a 47-27 win against Chancellors' School yesterday, their fifth win has secured them the title of Year 7 Mid-Herts District Basketball League Champions, with a game to spare!

"The squad have been fantastic all season, showing a consistently great attitude. Having lost narrowly in the final of the District Tournament (where games are very short) they have bounced back to win every single one of their full length matches in the League. The team have shown real togetherness and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship in every match.

"This is a huge achievement for the boys and the school. It has been over twenty years since a team from Hertswood won a District Basketball League, and they did it in style!

"Every member of the squad has contributed to the win but a special mention must go to the captain, Joe, who led by example with some outstanding performances and some huge scoring tallies. 

"I’d like to say a huge congratulations to the boys and let’s keep it going in Year 8!"
