Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

ON Mon­day, Septem­ber 17 the grand fi­nals of Euroa ju­nior bas­ket­ball was held in the ECA cen­tre at Euroa Sec­ondary Col­lege.

In the un­der 12 com­pe­ti­tion United ( coached by Kim Saxon) played Hawks ( coached by Katy Frewen) and United won 36 to 10.

Ethan Saxon was the ‘ Most Valu­able Player’ with 15 votes, with Aaron Hamill, Ry­der McLure and Anakin Pas­tuszka on 11 votes who were the run­ners up.

In the un­der 14 grand fi­nal, Rap­tors ( coached by Jake Pen­man, Hud­son Rams­den and Bryce Frost) played Suns ( coached by Kathryn Sut­ton) with the Rap­tors win­ning in a very tight fin­ish 32 to 31.

Bai­ley Allen won the best and fairest for the un­der 14s with Co­hen Paul run­ner up.

This was a real nail biter but the game was played in great spirit.

Will Creevey played a great game, with ac­cu­rate shoot­ing and great team work.

It was im­pres­sive to see the chil­dren re­ally get­ting into the game.

Many showed that they had great po­ten­tial - they all played fairly and were mind­ful of other team mem­bers.

All play­ers, their fam­i­lies and es­pe­cially the coaches should be very proud of the ef­forts and achieve­ments of these young­sters.

To pro­vide fur­ther chal­lenges for these young bas­ket­ballers, Euroa now has teams in the Shep­par­ton com­pe­ti­tion.

The un­der 14 rep­re­sen­ta­tive team is go­ing well with the chil­dren en­joy­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence with one win and one loss to date.

Fur­ther to this there are un­der 14 rep­re­sen­ta­tive try­outs from 5pm on Oc­to­ber 8 for any boys want­ing to play rep­re­sen­ta­tive bas­ket­ball in week­end tour­na­ments.

The un­der 12 boys and girls teams have been se­lected and start train­ing to­gether on Oc­to­ber 8 also.

These play­ers will be look­ing for spon­sor so any busi­ness or in­di­vid­ual who would like to spon­sor a team, they can con­tact Melinda Wat­son on 0438 952750.
