Pupils win basketball competition
St Edwards were crowned kings of the court at a Langdon School Sports Partnership basketball competition last week.
After edging past St Helens (4-2) and Sandringham (5-4), they proved too strong for Elmhurst (12-0).
And despite losing to St Lukes, they topped the qualifying group with 10 points.
A 6-0 win in a rematch with St Lukes in the semi-finals set up a decider with Sandringham, who had beaten St Helens in the other tie.
And St Edwards kept their nerve to claim a 7-5 victory and lift the silverware.
