Suns men to put the heat on rivals
A COFFS Harbour men’s basketball team will be back in the representative basketball business in 2016.
The Suns have made it official a return to NSW Waratah State League is imminent and the first pre-season hit-out will take place next Saturday, December 12, at Sportz Central.
The old rivals from Grafton City will be the opponent, which is fitting, with Vikings also announcing their intention to have a State League team back in business.
The sport is undergoing a renaissance on the Coffs Coast, with two major associations criss-crossing local schools with missionary zeal.
Coaches Yusuf Qaafow and Adrian Pickup have been teaching the sport in schools with great success at Korora, Boambee, Bonville and Narranga.
Meanwhile, Sportz Central will be packed this weekend as Bellinger Valley Braves conduct the club’s first Pacific Challenge Odd-Age Junior carnival.
