The team, known as the Dragons, won the Yorkshire and Humberside Basketball League Division 1, despite losing in their last game against Leeds City College. The top of the table clash saw the Dragons go into the game with enough points to win the league, not matter the outcome of the match.

College student and top player Ethan, who was nominated for the Student of the Year Award at this years’ Star Awards, said: “It feels incredible to be league champions.I really like being part of the team and I think it’s great that I can do it whilst studying at college.”\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ _bp_base=”0_2″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 20px;”][cs_element_image _id=”11″ ][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_inset=”0px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_inset=”0px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ _bp_base=”0_2″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” _bp_base=”0_2″ style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ _bp_base=”0_2″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”] [/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
