The team which proudly represented Savremena at the competition comprised students Jelena Jaćimovski, Marta Jovanović, Anđela Adžić, Katarina Matijašević, Nataša Katić, Ana Petrović, Dunja Stanojević, Vanja Knežević and Teodora Sićović.

Team spirit, along with thorough preparations and support from PE teachers Stefan Radojičić and Miloš Grbješić, and a great desire for victory helped Savremena’s students display an excellent performance in the semi-finals, where they beat the GSP Technical School 21:3 and qualified for the finals.

The string of success continued when Savremena beat the 14th Belgrade Gymnasium 22:6. The success achieved by Savremena’s ladies did not come as a surprise, as they always give full measure in PE lessons; the best reward for them will be participation in the tournament gathering the best schools in Belgrade.

We congratulate our women’s basketball team and root for them as they march on!
