U16/U18 Country Championships
March 29, 2022
On the weekend of the 19th and 20th March, Bacchus Marsh competed in the U16 boys and U18 boys in Division 3 and 4 Country Championships in Ballarat. There were some fantastic games played across the weekend at the new Selkirk Stadium at Wendouree, as well as the Minerdome.
The U18 boys had a great start on Saturday with 3 wins from 3 games.
This pushed the boys into Division 3 against the top teams at the tournament and they came up against Maffra in the quarter final. Maffra proved themselves a level above the Lions and went on to win Division 3. Great effort across the weekend boys.
The U16 boys had a very busy Saturday with 4 games in 9 hours. They won 2 of their first 3, before playing an awesome game against Hamilton, which they eventually lost. This pushed the team into Division 4 for Sunday’s games. The boys then proceeded to win 3 close finals by no more than 5 points, showing awesome stamina, composure and effort to take out the Division 4 title.
Fantastic work boys!
Thanks to coaches, team managers and parents for their commitment on the weekend.
