first time in their history Prescot School have
lifted four Knowsley Basketball titles. This
season the school entered four teams in local
competitions and won the Knowsley Championship at
Under 12, 13, 14 and 15 age groups.
The local senior Basketball team, Kirkby Hoops
have recognised the quality of some of the
youngster's by signing up Glynn Hunter, Philip
Lathom and Carl Burnett for league duty.
|Head of boys PE Iain Handley
believes that their success has been greatly
helped by the building of a new Sports Hall in
1996 and the hard work of the youngsters.
He said, " The building of the new facility
has given a focus for PE in the school. The
children are in practising Basketball at break
times and lunch times that has helped to improve
their standard of play."
