The Byron Bay Beez U/14 basketballers won division two of the NSW Country Championships held at Terrigal in June.
The side went through all seven games of the tournament undefeated and beat heavyweights Illawarra on the way, as well as Newcastle 47–35 in the final.
‘The boys have improved all year, so it is great to see they got a result for that effort,’ coach Matt Barlow said. ‘They really deserved it’.
It is the first time a side from the Byron Beez has won a country championship.
The U/16 boys’ Beez also capped off a good year with second place in the premier division of their age group at the championships. They were also runners-up at the Combined Eastern and Junior League Championships.
