The Kilsyth Junior Cobras were in tournament action over the Queens Birthday long weekend, posting impressive results at the National Junior Classic and Nunawading Tournaments.
The Under 12-1 Boys and Girls, 14-1 Boys and Girls, and 18-1 Boys were in action at the National Junior Classic, with the tournament featuring 16 of Australia’s best club teams. All five Cobra teams finished with .500 records or greater, with the 12-1 Girls falling short in the Bronze medal game to finish fourth, while the 18-1 Boys dropped just one game, placing fifth overall with a 5-1 record.
The 14-1 Boys (3-3) also made the top half, finishing in seventh place; the 14-1 Girls (3-3) overcame a tough start to win their last three games and place ninth; while the 12-1 Boys (3-3) narrowly missed out on the top half split, ending the weekend at number 14.
The remainder of our Junior Cobra teams battled it out at the Nunawading Tournament, with 13 teams advancing to semi finals, with a further four securing grand final berths. The U18-1 Girls were crowned champions, while the U12-2 and 12-3 Girls and 14-5 Boys each finished their respective tournaments as runners-up.
Congratulations to all of our teams over the course of a gruelling weekend!
