Kyrah - Basketball National Final Fours

Posted on: May 13th 2022College Events


Congratulations to Year 9 student Kyrah on an incredible season of basketball playing for the Leicester Riders.

Kyrah was a key player in the Riders U14 girls' team during their debut season in the National Basketball League. Not only did their team win the Midlands league division with 11 wins from 12 games, they then progressed through the play-off rounds to the National Final Fours in Manchester, where the top four teams in the country faced off.

The Riders suffered a narrow 55-51 defeat to London's Richmond Knights in their semi-final before an emphatic 66-40 win over Ipswich in the 3rd/4th play-off. Kyrah was a key contributor in this game, recording an outstanding 23 points and 10 rebounds as her team confirmed a 3rd place ranking in the whole country.

What an amazing achievement! Well done Kyrah!
