Rochester girls are jump­ing for hoops

Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

ROCHESTER Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion has made his­tory with the first un­der 18 girls squad named this sea­son.

It’s an ex­cit­ing prospect for the club and the com­mu­nity who have only had a boys side in the pre­vi­ous two years.

The boys squad has been suc­cess­ful in its bas­ket­ball pur­suits, win­ning one tour­na­ment and play­ing in two grand fi­nals in 2015.

The girls are hop­ing to achieve the same re­sults when they com­pete this week­end at a tour­na­ment in Shep­par­ton.

The team will cer­tainly look the part when they take the court wear­ing new uni­forms which have been do­nated by Rochester Twi­light Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

The RBA is thank­ful for the gen­eros­ity and help from the net­ball as­so­ci­a­tion to en­able the play­ers to rep­re­sent Rochester and wear the uni­forms with great pride.

Karen Fuller has been se­lected as coach of the girls squad.
