Basketball Ballarat Crowned as Under – 16 Country Champs

Last weekend some of Basketball Ballarat’s best Under-16 & Under-18 players took part in the Country Championships in Bendigo. Players from across the state took to the courts in efforts to be claimed champions for 2019.

The Thrifty Ballarat Miners & Rush Juniors represented strongly in the tournament with both Under-16 & Under-18 Miners Rush teams battling it out over the weekend. 

Our Under-16 Division 1 Girls Rush team had an outstanding weekend being crowned the U16 Country Champs for 2019 defeating Seymour 55 – 36.   

Glenn White the Elite Teams Manager was excited by the results and efforts by all the teams participating over the weekend.

“We are extremely proud of all the players and coaches representing Basketball Ballarat through the Thrifty Ballarat Miners Rush Junior pathway program” White said.

We also saw success in the U16 & 18’s Boys who played off for the championship but unfortunately just falling short.

A Big Well done to all Basketball Ballarat players on their outstanding achievements!
