Byron Bay basket ballers are in full swing after playing  four games at the Cavanbah Centre courts earlier in October as part of the Sunshine Conference.

The day included a double header where the Byron Beez took on the Bellingen Braves and the Coffs Harbour Suns.

The Beez Men managed a clean sweep defeating the Bellingen Braves 80–69, and then finishing off the Coffs Harbour Suns 95–82.

‘Both games were very exciting, with all players showing speed and skill to the next level,’ Beez senior director Jenny Ogle said.

The Beez Women achieved one win out of two, firstly defeating Bellingen Braves 70–60 where Isy Crawford stood out with a top score of 23 points.

They they went on to lose to Coffs Harbour Suns 51–86, after injury depleted the squad to just five players.

Back to full strength last Saturday the Beez Women beat the Ballina Breakers 55–51, playing at Ballina.
