Under 16 Boys 5

Some tightly contested games for our 16 Boys 5 this weekend, unfortunately, saw them go down to our 16 Boys 4, ending their weekend early.

Under 16 Boys 8

Our final under 16 team to take to Colac this weekend, our 16 Boys 8 put up a great fight against some tough competition. A nailbiter against Surfcoast unfortunately saw the boys get pipped at the post by just 1 point. Again, while the results weren’t perfect, the team still showed great resilience and gained great learning experiences for their VJBL season.

Under 18 Girls 2

Our only girls team to attend this weekend at Colac came out and battled hard against some fierce competition. A one point loss to Bellarine and a draw to Maryborough meant day 1 couldn’t get much closer! After a tough loss to Colac, the Girls bounced back to finish on a high note defeating Bellarine is a rematch 28-21. Congratulations girls on a great effort!

Under 18 Boys 3

Taking on some tough competition in Division 1 of the tournament, our 18 Boys 3 lost some tough games against Surfcoast and the home team Colac. The results of the weekend weren’t what the team was after, however, some great learning and takeaways will have them in good stead for the rest of the VJBL season.

Under 18 Boys 6

Our under 18 boys 6 were the last team to take the court at the Colac tournament this weekend. There was some tough competition in Division 2 which translated into hard-fought games every round for our boys. The results didn’t fall in their favour but the lessons of the tournament will definitely help them in the quest for a VJBL title this year.
