Bendigo Basketballers helped Victoria secure bronze at the recent Australian Junior Championships.
The Victoria Under-20 A Women went head-to-head against New South Wales in the bronze medal match, finishing the clash in style with an 85-58 victory.
The team included two Bendigo Braves products, Madeline Condron and Tess Barnes.
The team's head coach Zoe Carr said the group worked tirelessly throughout the tournament.
"I could not be more proud of these girls," Carr said. "They worked so hard and the improvement and growth we have seen over the week is a credit to each and every one of them."
Also at the competition was Bendigo's Kai Daniels who represented the state on the Under-20 A Men's team.
The squad finished the tournament in fifth place.
Meanwhile, the CBL Braves, which Daniels also played for, took on the Maryborough Blazers in the grand final on Saturday night.
The team fell short of championship glory after going down to the Blazers 79-61.
Daniels was absent from the CBL grand final due to state representation commitments at the Australian Junior Championships.
