Suns 14s earn ticket to national basketball titles

BASKETBALL: Coach Les Gough knows what it takes for a basketball team to reach the national championships.

He's been there twice before and now lightning will strike a third time, with his Coffs Harbour Suns under-14 girls not only qualifying for the NSW Championships in Maitland at the end of August but he and assistant coach Emily Crampton will lead the way to Shepparton in October when they play on the national stage.

The under-12 division-one girls also have an appointment in Maitland, while the under-14 girls division-two team head to Sutherland for the State Cup on August 11-12.
