BHS Handball Team Takes 2nd Place.

Bayhill’s Handball team took 2nd Place in the Cal Cup Handball Tournament. The final game with the Sterne School was tight until Sterne pulled ahead defeating Bayhill 25-30. The BHS team completed the season with a 6-3 record. Not bad for a team’s second year in the league.

Team Handball began last year at Bayhill with students learning a sport that seems a bit like ¬†basketball with goals rather than baskets. Each team consists of 7 players (6 on the field and one goalkeeper). Players try to move the ball down field by dribbling and passing, with the aim to score by throwing the ball into the opposing team’s goal.
