On Friday 23rd February the Balshaw's Year 10 Handball team went to represent South Ribble at the Lancashire School Games Handball competition held at UCLan.

The best teams from across Lancashire were in attendance and obviously the standard of Handball was very strong. The Balshaw's boys did very well considering the team are quite inexperienced.

They lost their first game but then came back with a draw in their second. Once they found their feet they performed much better and managed to win their next two games. It came down to an almost playoff game against Moorhead from Preston whereby the winner of the final group game would go through to the semi-finals.

In a very tight game Balshaw's were beaten 4-3 and unfortunately did not progress to the semi-finals.
