This is the fourth year in a row that Hackney led by Coach Andrea Norton and assistant Jeff Danchie have won the championship.
Watched by an enthusiastic crowd it was a very proud day to be part of Hackney Community College.

Congratulations to HCC’s Men’s Basketball team and coach Andrea Norton! In a close and exciting final against Loreto from Manchester – Hackney Community College won the BCS cup again! Final score: 92 – 81!
Having to set off at 6am on the long journey to Douglas Ellis Stadium Birmingham suddenly seemed worthwhile when you were coming back with a minibus full of medals.
We’re still competing in all major cup competitions, we’re top of the Elite League and Regional Champions representing the East of Britain at the National Championships!
Congratulations should go to Andrea Norton (men’s coach) and Sam Stiller (women’s coach) for their skill and commitment to the programme and continuing the Hackney College basketball legacy.
