Ka¯ piti Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion en­tered two 11 and un­der teams into a re­gional bas­ket­ball tour­na­ment in Levin re­cently.

“Both teams per­formed ad­mirably with one team fin­ish­ing sec­ond and the other team third,” KBA chair­man Rob Scriven said.

“The most ex­cit­ing game was when they played each other in the semi fi­nal. It was a very close and a hard fought game with Ka¯ piti Suns white beat­ing Ka¯ piti Suns blue.

“In the fi­nal Ka¯ piti Suns white played Raukawa Ki Te Tonga, a team they drew with in the round robin play but fell short 34-30.”

Scriven said it was tes­ta­ment to the growth of the game in Ka¯ piti that they could field two com­pet­i­tive teams at this grade.

“We de­lib­er­ately tried to even out the teams to give ev­ery­one a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Well done to all in­volved.”
