Basketball Team Bounce To The Top Of The Championship
29 May 2012
Salford City College’s mixed basketball team have bounced to the top by winning the Greater Manchester Inter-College Basketball Championships.
The Salford City Saints were awarded their medals by basketball legend, and Stockport resident, John Amaechi who was one of the event organisers.
As a relatively new edition to the college’s Sports Academy, winning such a high profile tournament is a great achievement for all of the team.
Ron Matthews, Basketball Coach at Salford City College, was delighted with the achievement; “All of the team played exceptionally well throughout the tournament, with some players having to play out of their usual positions. Winning the Greater Manchester Inter-College Basketball Championship is a step in the right direction to the national league. I hope we can continue our winning ways into next season.”
