U/16 junior Bee Isy Crawford driving to the basket playing against the Taree Tornadoes.

A high level of interest and talent means the Byron Bay Beez junior basketball has entered six teams into this year’s Waratah representative league.

Boy and girl teams will compete in U/14, U/16 and U/18 competitions.

Round 1 has been finalised with the Beez showing mixed results.

The U/14 and U/16 girls teams both had extremely convincing wins in all of their games at Coffs Harbour on March 9 and 10, giving their opposition something to think about.

Taree, Tamworth, Bellinger Valley, Quirindi, Coffs Harbour and Lismore teams were very quickly shown how it’s done, with the Beez’ sting leaving them floundering.

In all games the Beez standout quality was their amazing team effort, with all players sharing all skills and giving the opposition nowhere to turn.

The U/18 girls, U/16 and U/14 boys all won one game from three on their weekend in Port Macquarie on March 3 and 4.

All The Beez games were incredibly close, giving them more enthusiasm to train harder, get fitter and attack round two with renewed vigour.

A big thankyou once again to the coaches, managers and all the parents who support this program.
