10 teams from across Leicestershire, Leicester & Rutland took part in the Year 5 & 6 Mixed School Games Basketball Super-Series Finals this week.
Badgerbrook Primary School (Blaby & Harborough) came out of a high pressure final victorious, with Manor High (Oadby & Wigston) forced to settle for second place. Third place went to St Bartholemews CofE Primary School (North Charnwood).
The Super-Series Final saw all ten partnerships take part, with up to ten boys and girls representing each partnership. Great fun was had by all on the day and a surprise visit from the LRS School Games mascot Dazzle concluded the event with a bang!
The Spirit of the Games Award, which is awarded to the school showing the most determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork, went to Ashby Willesley Primary School representing North West Leicestershire.
