THE Casterton Junior Basketball Association sent junior squad teams to Naracoorte to compete in the Junior Basketball Tournament recently.
Two teams had success, with the under-12 girls and the under-14 boys winning their division two grand finals. All teams competing for Casterton played excellent basketball and really showed that although they are from a very small town, the talented young athletes have the skill and determination to play against the bigger leagues.
This is due to the great band of volunteer coaches and helpers that Casterton has and the dedication from Jodie and Donna at the Aussie Hoops level.
The under-14 boys played five games for the weekend; on the first day they lost two games and drew one.,
The boys were a little disappointed and in true Casterton spirit came out fighting the next day. The boys really started to play as a team and dug deep to win both the semi and grand final on the final day.
