The girls and boys senior basketball teams journeyed to Antwerp on Friday to participate in the annual Early Bird Tournament.  This was the first time that the BSN had been invited to this prestigious tournament.  The boys started the tournament with a 41-33 victory in The Netherlands derby against the International School of Amsterdam, at the same time the girls were enjoying a 26-21 victory over the International School of Brussels.  This meant that both teams progressed in to the competition for the top 4 on the Saturday with both teams facing the International School of Luxembourg in the semi-finals.

Unfortunately both teams lost to very strong teams.  This meant that the teams moved on to the consolation finals for 3rd/4th place.  Again, both teams faced the same opposition in the hosts, Antwerp International School.  This time the girls put their best foot forward and won by 20 points meaning they finished in third position overall.  The boys lost another tough fixture and finished fourth overall.  Two players, Benedetta and Kenny, were awarded all-star selections over the two days.

Congratulations to all of the players for representing the BSN and putting in such an impressive performance.
