Coasters take on Horsham in first round
THE wait is over for the Portland men’s and women’s Country Basketball League representative teams as they take the court tomorrow against Horsham.
Both sides are boasting formidable line ups for the 2018-19 season and will hope to get a strong start in their first away game at the Horsham Basketball Stadium.
The women’s team will be led by returning playing coach Cherie Beckingham with the assistance of Leah Sullivan.
Beckingham will be a key point guard and will be aided by the likes of Katie Zeunert, Remy Grant and Courtney Gadsden up front.
Alana Strom is a massive inclusion after playing a key role in the Warrnambool Mermaids Big V premiership over a month ago.
Strom will be assisted down back by a strong combination of Kayla Pickert, Taylah Nelson and Eliza Alexander.
Also joining the side is versatile players Tayla Falconer, Chelsea McMahon and Sarah Wall who can rotate down back and play as guards when necessary.
