Slam dunk for basketballer with national call up
by Tom Martin

A TALENTED basketball player from a Bootle school has been called up to the Welsh national team.

Andrew Park, who is in Year 11 at Hillside High School, will now compete for Wales in the forthcoming Home Nations Championships after shining in local competitions.

He will also be jetting off to Italy later this year to play in the European Championships to help mark a successful year for the youngster.

A spokesperson for the school said: “Andrew is currently studying for his GCSE exams which he will sit this summer and he is managing to keep up with both his academic studies, achieving good grades across the board in his mock exams, and his many sporting successes. We want to wish Andrew the best of luck.”
