A great week was had by all the players and team staff that made the trek to New Zealand for the Mel Young Easter Classic in Tauranga. South Australia Country took 13 players and three team staff.
It was a great experience for everyone, not only the basketball but having the opportunity to visit Rotorua and the boys also learned the Haka, as well as visiting the hot pools.
Both girls teams managed to bring home Gold Medals and the U14 Boys finished 5th and the U16 Boys finished 6th in very tough pools all round.
Congratulations to all the players and staff and to Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup for organising this great experience for the players and families.
