The Byron Bay under-14 boys ended the basketball representative season by winning the North Coast Shield Basketball Competition with a clean sweep at the Lismore Basketball Stadium on Sunday.
The boys displayed excellent teamwork and a great spirit of camaraderie against top-quality competition from Yamba, Lismore and Ballina.
The team was ably led by Captain Nicholas Heathcote and coached by Nash Campbell and John Hale.
‘The standard of basketball in the region is growing and the decision by the shire to build a two-court stadium three years ago,’ said John Hale, ‘has created a wonderful opportunity for local kids to learn and master the great game of basketball.’
The team won each of their games by a comfortable margin:
Byron v Lismore 48 / 21, Byron v Yamba 49 / 24, and Byron v Ballina 58 / 34.
