Best of the best compete

BENDIGO basketballers competed in two prestigious events last week.

The young stars took part in the Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup (ACJBC) in Albury and the Southern Cross Basketball Challenge in Knox.

Both events were a chance for basketballers to test their skills. Basketball Victoria Country’s Sam Cartwright said the tournaments were great stepping stones.

“The Southern Cross Challenge is an elite under-14 and under-15 competition,” he said. “The Albury tournament is also where the best of the best compete.”

Basketballers who took part in the ACJBC included Elliot Beks, Jak Reade, Rochelle Mangan, Meg Williams, Lewis Beks, Thomas Hurse, and Alexandra Strawhorn.

Southern Cross basketballers were, Kai Daniels, Ben Pedretti, Danielle O’Toole, Fraser Bell, Nick Grantham, Sebastian McArdle, Jordan Wanafalea and Anna Meade.
