‘Level 47’ went all the way in the B-grade senior carnival held in Byron Bay last weekend.

The B-grade leg of Byron Bay Basketball’s sixth annual Seniors Carnival was won by a local team called ‘Level 47’ at the Cavanbah centre over the weekend.
Teams came from Griffith University, Brisbane and Toowoomba.
Players coming from all over Australia met up and joined local teams as well as those from Griffith University, Brisbane and Toowoomba for their yearly fix of carnival fun.
Over the three days of the carnival there were some very hot competition and extremely close games.
The final was played between undefeated Greendoggs 1 and Level 47. With a mixture of youth and experience the local boys fought hard to get the lead early and kept it, earning a 40–33 win.
The Women’s Championship was taken out by the GU Greendoggs, who beat the Brisbane Post-Tels in the final.
The committee would like to thank all the teams who support this event annually; also the referees who work hard at keeping everything even.
Another great weekend of basketball is on next weekend for the A-Grade Senior Carnival.
