Stone competes at 2019 BVC Jamboree
YOUNG basketballer Sienna Stone has recently returned from the Basketball Victoria Country Jamboree in Echuca after coming up against some of the state’s best under-12 basketballers.
Stone was selected to take part in the Jamboree after attending an under-12 skills day where 120 girls and 120 boys from across Country Victoria where chosen for the event from September 21-24.
Throughout the four days Stone played for the Magpies team and came up against Bushrangers, Kookaburras, Emus, Goannas and Jackaroos.
The Jamboree is the first step towards Basketball Victoria’s elite pathways with some of the best up and coming coaches taking part and guiding the future generations of basketball Victoria.
Stone said it was a great few days and she enjoyed the step up in competition.
“It was really, really fun,” Stone said.
“I think some of my favourite parts were playing in the really hard and close games.
“When there was only one point in the game or it was really close and you had to keep pushing for until the end of the game; that was really good.”
