A trio of Kilsyth Cobra Under 18-1 Boys have been selected to Victorian Metro Under 18 squad.
Josh Duach, Lachlan Vandervorm and Roosevelt Williams Jr. have each been named to the Victoria Metro U18 squad after impressive performances throughout the tryout process.
Josh has been named to the final team of 10 and will make the trip to Townsville to compete in the U18 National Championships in April, while Lachlan and Roosevelt Jr. were named as emergencies after a strong showing at the East Coast Challenge in Sydney in early January, a tournament featuring the top 24 players from Victoria competing against NSW, South Australia and the ACT. Under 18-1 Cobras head coach Zach Moult will also serve as a development coach for the Vic Metro state team.
It’s been a big 12 months for Duach, who won Gold last year with the U16 Vic Metro team, before leading the Under 15 Australian squad to Gold at the FIBA Oceania Championships in December — while being named to the tournament’s All-Star Five in the process.
The Under 18 Australian Championships will be held in Townsville from April 13 to 20.
