Bas­ket­ballers off to cham­pi­onships

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Two Hor­sham Am­a­teur Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion teams will com­pete in divi­sion three and four state cham­pi­onships in Bendigo at the week­end.

As­so­ci­a­tion ju­nior rep­re­sen­ta­tive di­rec­tor Tony Sleep said the Hor­nets un­der-18 boys and un­der-16 girls would fly the flag at the cham­pi­onships, on Satur­day and Sun­day.

Sleep coaches the boys team, with Damien Kil­patrick in charge of the girls out­fit.

“The seven boys will have a tough sched­ule with four games on the first day of the cham­pi­onships, but I feel that the team will re­main com­pet­i­tive through­out,” Sleep said.

“We have a good blend of speed and size as well as a solid mix of top and bot­tom-age play­ers.

“Only seven play­ers will make ro­ta­tions, so it’s im­por­tant to keep the guys fresh – but I have faith that the guys we are tak­ing can have a com­pet­i­tive week­end.”

Sleep said Darcy Ho­gan, Ri­ley Bryan, Jack Sleep and Will Griffiths were play­ing their fi­nal year in the ju­nior Hor­nets uni­form.

Ararat Red­backs will send un­der-16 and un­der-18 boys, along with un­der-16 girls.

War­rackn­abeal’s un­der-18 boys team will also com­pete.
