Braves girls collect Country title

BELLINGER Valley Braves have added another piece of silverware to the trophy cabinet.

Playing at the annual John Martin NSW Country Basketball Tournament in Gosford the 16-girls team went through undefeated to claim victory in division two.

They outpointed Gosford, Batemans Bay and Maitland to qualify for the finals and then overcame Bathurst in a tough, physical game to win 28-25.

Karlee Howarth was awarded MVP.

The 14-boys also took part to qualify for the Country Championship League but went down narrowly to Gosford, Maitland, Albury and Lithgow.

The bright moment came with a huge 67-32 victory over Western Reds to put them in fifth place overall.
