Juniors shine at competition
Karratha’s junior basketballers have done the region proud in their first stint at the WA Basketball Country Championships.
Two girls’ and four boys’ teams headed to Perth in late February, raring to play against the best young basketball talent in regional WA, and while it was the effort that counted, there were also plenty of good results in the mix.
In the junior girls’ competition, the Karratha under-12s side only dropped one game on their way to winning their division, edging out Eaton on percentage. They blitzed Eaton side in the grand final to win 16-5 and claim the trophy.
The under-13s girls came sixth out of eight teams in their division 2 competition and did well to win two games in their championship debut.
Four junior boys’ sides headed to Perth the next week and put in good performances.
The under-13s side were runners-up in their third division, only beaten by Narrogin overall.
Meanwhile, Karratha’s under12s division 2 and under-15s division 3 boys’ teams fought hard and both came in third, and under-14s finished in sixth place in division three.
KBA senior teams competed in the country championships in Perth last week.
The Karratha Basketball Association's under-12s and under-13s girls were high achievers at the WA Basketball Country Championships.
