Juniors get a real buzz

THE McDonalds Saturday Basketball competition continues to be a popular place for players and spectators alike.

With 63 teams participating each week, SportzCentral is a busy place.

Congratulations to all of those parents and family members who regularly attend the games and support the players.

In particular, the BDC Bulls in the Boys Year 3 / 4 Div 2 must have the most loyal group of supporters, who stand out in the crowd with their bright red 'Bulls' caps.

It is fantastic to see parents and grandparents taking such an interest and providing such valuable support to the future stars of CHBA.

Well done to all involved with the BDC Bulls side.

And the support must be showing on the courts, with the BDC Bulls winning their division, ahead of St Augustines.

In the Year 3 /4 boys division 1 competition, Kororo Kickers are ahead by one win over CCS Cyclones, while BDC Bombers lead St Augustines Smashers in the Year 5/6 boys division 2.

It is an all MHOC affair in the 5/6 boys top division, with Scorchers just one win ahead of Bullets.

In the girls competitions, Kororo Primary are the stand out school.

Congratulations to Julie Black and her hard working band of parents from Kororo.

Kororo Ice are leading the 3/4 girls div 1 ahead of St Augustines Slam Dunks, while Kororo Babes and kororo Starz are equal first in the second division.

CCS Tigers lead the MHOC Superstars in the 5/6 girls div 1, while MHOC Spirit have top place over Koror Hot Shots in 5/6 girls div 2.

Tyalla Coffs Lightning are coming first in 5/6 girls div 3 with Koror Kittens just two wins behind.

Congratulations to the group of referees who started at the beginning of this competition.

They have all now received theirofficial zebra stripes.

Referee supervisors will continue to monitor the refereeing, who will now be required to refine and show improvement in their skills each week to remain on the payroll.

Special congratulations to Jasmine Kennedy and Luke McGinniskin, who did an outstanding job of refereeing one of the Year 2 funball matches last Saturday.

One of the coaches came to the court supervisors offices to report what a fantastic job the referees had done, so congratulations to Jasmine and Luke.
