Congratulations to the players listed below for making the South Australian Country Basketball Under 14 State players from Whyalla:
Whyalla is set to play host to more than 450 basketballers for the 20th annual Whyalla Steelers junior basketball carnival.
Teams from across the region in a range of age groups will battle it out on court to be crowned champions on February 8 and 9.
Whyalla Steelers coach Michael Quinn said the carnival would see teams from around the state play as many games as possible in as many venues as the Whyalla Basketball Association could access.
“Our carnival started back in 1995 and has been one of the best in South Australia for the past 20 years,” he said.
”We have teams from Port Augusta, Port Pirie, Port Lincoln, Roxby Downs, Murray Bridge and a few clubs from Adelaide come each year.
“We attract over 2000 people into Whyalla over this weekend with approximately 450 to 500 players.”
Mr Quinn said people could expect to see strong performances from the Whyalla outfits, including the under 12 girls side which had won the past two carnivals.
Mr Quinn said he also expected Whyalla under 16 girls to be “too strong” for the competition, picking an easy win.
Port Pirie under 16 and 18 boys are tipped to be tough to beat, the older boys were champions in the two previous carnivals.
Mr Quinn said there was plenty of local talent to keep an eye out for with a few just returned from an interstate cup.
“Local players Tia Bails, AJ Day, Luke Carson and Jorja Eldridge will be looking for big weekends after returning from the Australian Junior Country Cup in Albury,” he said.
There will be full canteen facilities, barbecue lunch and dinners and heaps of on court action.
