A team of S1 Auchinleck Academy pupils recently participated in the Active Schools Basketball Finals at Doon Academy on Thursday 20 February.

Inter-house heats were held beforehand within Auchinleck  Academy in a tournament ran by the school Young Ambassadors, Jordan Curtis, Jacalyn Dunlop, Natasha Dunlop and Mathew Crawshaw. The young ambassadors did an excellent job in the planning and delivery of this event in which the winning team were Lochlea.

 The team, made up of Scott Fowler, Adam Watt, Daniel Mitchell, Jordan Mouzer, Chelsey McCreadie, Niamh Shirkie, Nina Birkett and Amy Murdoch, then competed in the finals at Doon Academy against 9 other S1 teams from throughout East Ayrshire with around 72 pupils involved. Auchinleck did very well and showed great enthusiasm and sportsmanship throughout, finishing 4th equal, which is a great achievement.

 Well done to all those involved.
