Basketball Scottish Cup Champions!
The NBHS senior boys’ basketball team beat Falkirk High School 88-54 on Tuesday to win the Basketball Scotland Schools Open Boys Cup Final for the first time in the school’s history.
The game, played at the Oriam in Edinburgh, started slightly nervously for North Berwick, with Falkirk taking a 10-2 lead early on. However, the team quickly adjusted to the Falkirk defence and finished the first quarter up 15-12. From then on NBHS dominated, taking a 42-26 lead into half time and seeing out the second half comfortably.
It was an impressive performance from the whole squad, with everyone getting playing time, and there were stand-out games from Owen Mackle, Finn Baxter and Shaun Samson. It was also a fitting end to the school basketball careers of S6 pupils David Crowley and Ciaran McSherry, who have both been an integral part of the school team for the last six years.
The team conducted themselves impeccably throughout the season, and were a real credit to the school. With the majority of the team returning next year, the future is looking bright for NBHS basketball.
