The Kilsyth Junior Cobras wrapped up another successful Eltham Dandenong Tournament campaign over the Australia Day long weekend, headlined by nine teams securing Grand Final berths.
Dubbed the ‘Worlds Largest Junior Basketball Tournament,’ the annual competition, this year’s edition featured over 1400 teams and 4000 games spanning from Under 10’s through to Under 21’s and All Abilities age groups. While the tournament serves as an ideal ‘refresher’ for teams returning to action following the Christmas and New Year break, our Cobras found tremendous success on the court, with over half of our teams advancing to final four of their respective competitions.
Seventeen Cobra teams earned trips to the final four, while all ten 1’s teams secured finals berths. The Under 12-3 and 14-5 Girls, and Under 12-2, 12-3, 12-4, 14-2, 14-5 and 18-1’s played-off in Grand Final action, while the Under 12-5 Girls claimed a championship in their first representative season.
Congratulations to all of our Cobra teams over the course of the weekend for yet another successful tournament campaign!
