Junior squads bat­tle hard

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Two Hor­sham Am­a­teur Basketball As­so­ci­a­tion teams earned run­ner-up hon­ours at a Nara­coorte junior tour­na­ment at the week­end.

The Hor­sham Hornets un­der-16 girls were seek­ing back-to-back ti­tles and played well through­out the tour­na­ment to qual­ify for the grand fi­nal.

The girls bat­tled hard but went down to Millicent by five points in a thriller.

The un­der-14 girls were also strong through­out the week­end.

They sur­vived over­time in a semi-fi­nal to qual­ify for a grand fi­nal berth, also against Millicent.

Millicent proved too strong, tri­umph­ing 38-17.

The Hornets un­der-14 boys white de­vel­op­ment squad showed ter­rific im­prove­ment and fell just short of a fi­nals berth, while the un­der-12 girls blue team was un­lucky not to make fi­nals af­ter two wins and a draw, miss­ing out on per­cent­age.

The girls also showed im­prove­ment at Nara­coorte.

Un­der-12 boys blue de­vel­op­ment team cel­e­brated its first win and was very com­pet­i­tive.

They had nar­row losses and a ter­rific week of learn­ing.

The un­der-12 boys team was com­pet­i­tive all week­end with­out reg­is­ter­ing a win. The side did not lose a game by more than 12 points.

Their fo­cus now shifts to state cham­pi­onships in Bendigo in April.
