Byron Bay Basketball’s expanding talent pool this year saw four players representing the club at the 2019 Australia Junior Country Cup in Albury/Wodonga, and two of them going on to be selected to represent their state
Byron Bay Beez players Laila Campbell, Isis Crawford, Harley Kent and Jackson Ware competed for NSW against the top country teams from Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.
Harley and Jackson also went on to be selected for the U/16 NSW Country squad owing to their performances.
‘I am extremely proud of the players. Last year we sent three players to the Country Cup; this year it’s four, and two have been selected into the country squad, which is a great achievement for a relatively new club,’ club president Alvin Caoyonan said.
The NSW country team will compete at the 2019 U/16 Australian Junior Championships in Darwin, over July 6–13, later this year.
