Last Saturday 21st May, Anna Saiz and her team, Valencia Basket, were proclaimed Champions of Spain Cadet (U16) Female Selection. The place to participate in the National Championship of Spain was earned after being first in the regular season and becoming Regional Champions in the Final 4 which was held in Sax (Alicante) from 29th April to 1st May.
This year, the National Spanish Championship was held in Lleida from the 15th to the 21st of May, which coincided with the dates of our student’s official exams. As it was a national competition and official exams, there was no exemption or possibility of rescheduling. Therefore, we had to find an official NABSS centre for Anna to sit the exams. The closest school that met the requirements was the British School of Barcelona in Castelldefels (Barcelona), so our AMAZING ANNA had to make more than 3 trips from Binéfar (Huesca) to the school, having travelled 195 km one way to be able to combine exams and matches.
We could not be prouder of all her effort, dedication, hard work and victories, we have a true champion in our midst.
