Thirteen teams from nine primary schools competed in the Borders Sport and Leisure Basketball Tournament held at Hawick High School.

Spilt into two pools, the sides took part in a series of four-minute matches with Trinity, Wilton One, Parkside One and Burnfoot Two making it through to the semi-finals.

The final, between Trinity and Burnfoot Two, was exceptionally closely contested, with the former eventually emerging the victors with a score of 4-3.

Paul Scott, Borders Sport and Leisure active schools coordinator, said: “What a great tournament.

“From start to finish the basketball on show was first class and the boys demonstrated great ability and skill.

“Very well done to Trinity Primary School who claimed the 2014 title.”

The competition was open to all P6/7 primary school boys in the Hawick and Jedburgh areas.

It followed a series of basketball sessions held within schools and led by PE specialists, teachers, parents and coaches.
