Basketballers selected for Australian Schoolboys

Brandon Freire and Matur Maluach gained selection in the Australian Schoolboys Basketball team at the completion of the School Sport Australian Basketball Championships held in Canberra last week.

With NSW fielding two teams, Brandon and Matur played for the NSW Invitational team and Jaidyn Goodwin and Reed Nottage gained selection in the NSW 1sts team.

At weeks end the undefeated NSW 1sts played the NSW Invitational team for the gold medal. In a fiery contest NSW Invitational held their composure to come out victors and gain not only the Gold Medal but “bragging rights” for future years. For the record book the results were NSW Invitational 74 def. NSW1 58.

Congratulations to the boys on their achievements.
