Yr 10 Student Jeremy Nobes was involved in the Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup (ACJBC) earlier in the year as part of the South Australian U16 Country Basketball Team – the Magpies.
This tournament was held in Albury-Wodonga NSW/VIC, with games being played at the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre in Albury and the Wodonga Sports & Leisure Centre in Wodonga.
The Magpies finished in 5th place out 10 teams competing, with the team hoping for a slightly better finish given they took out the title in 2014.
Jeremy was chosen in the team after attending the South Australian Country Development Squad program every Monday night over a 7 month period. He then took part in two weekends of tryouts with players from all over the state, with a final team being selected at the conclusion.
When asked what he enjoyed most about the experience Jeremy said: “It was great fun and we got to meet many players from all over Australia and NZ”.
Congratulations Jeremy on your fantastic achievement. We wish you all the best for your future sporting pursuits!
