Seahaven Academy are the Force Basketball 2018/19 Schools Championship U16 winners following a convincing victory over Peacehaven Community School (PCS) in the final of the two day tournament.
Day 1, at Lewes Leisure Centre, featured teams from Kings Academy (Ringmer), Seahaven Academy (Newhaven) and Priory School Lewes. The first round of games resulted in a victory for Priory over Kings, and two wins from two for Seahaven, who followed a convincing defeat of Kings with a close 42-34 victory over Priory.
Day 2, hosted by PCS, started with the home side beating Kings but then losing to Seahaven in the final group game. The first semi-final was a walkover win for Seahaven over Priory, and a hard fought victory for PCS over Kings.
The Final provided the PCS team with a chance to go one better than their defeat in the final of the U14 tournament but a commanding performance from Seahaven left PCS in the runners-up position again, as Seahaven secured the Championship in impressive style.
