Top ju­niors in the Top End

Kwinana Courier - - Sport -

TWO lo­cal girls are show­cas­ing their bas­ket­ball skills in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory this week.

Is­abelle Clas­son, of Warn­bro, and Jesni Cooper, of Bal­divis, are com­pet­ing in the School Sport Bas­ket­ball Cham­pi­onships.

Is­abelle (18) is the team cap­tain and has been play­ing bas­ket­ball for 11 years.

The Kolbe Catholic Col­lege stu­dent has been play­ing in the State Bas­ket­ball League and hopes to get a schol­ar­ship at a US col­lege.

Jesni (16) has been play­ing bas­ket­ball for 10 years and is in the spe­cial­ist sports pro­gram at Wil­let­ton Se­nior High School.

She is con­tracted to the Rock­ing­ham Flames and also hopes to get a schol­ar­ship at a US col­lege.

Jesni’s goal is to play bas­ket­ball for Aus­tralia.

The aim of School Sport WA is to pro­mote, or­gan­ise and co-or­di­nate sport­ing com­pe­ti­tions for stu­dents at lo­cal, re­gional and in­ter­state level.
