Margaret River girls basketball gets Country championship boost

The Margaret River Girls Basketball squad travelled to Perth recently to vie for glory in the Country Championship Basketball competition. The teams, representing under 13s, under 15s, under 16s and under 17s divisions headed north for the competition and U13 coach Fiona Edwards said she was proud of the girls’ efforts.

“The U13 girls were undefeated in Division 2, playing seven games over the two day period,” Mrs Edwards said. The team went on to defeat Collie in the Grand Final game. 

“They were brilliant all weekend, and played very well as a team,” Mrs Edwards said. Margaret River’s Mischa Edwards was named an ‘all star’ alongside players from Karratha and Collie. The U13 team will move up into the Championship Division for 2018.
