Junior Cobras Hamish MacDonald, David Okwera, Roosevelt Williams Jr. and Nikita Young have been selected to the Victorian Metro Under 20 A Men’s and Women’s teams, respectively, ahead of this week’s Under 20 National Championships in Canberra.


Both MacDonald and Okwera will represent Victoria for the first time in Canberra, with the pair each enjoying impressive 2019 campaigns with the Cobras. MacDonald played a key role in helping the Cobra VYC and U21 Men’s teams secure playoff berths in 2019, while Okwera was named MVP of the U18-1 Cobra Boys, who recorded the state’s top regular season record last year.


Williams will represent Victoria for a second straight season, having being named as an emergency to the Metro U18 Boys team last year – and starred alongside Okwera with the U18-1 Cobra Boys in 2019. Young – who was named team MVP for the U18-1 Cobra Girls last year and enjoyed a standout rookie VYC campaign – has been named as an emergency for the Vic Metro A Women’s team and will not travel to the U20 championships.


The U20 National Championships tip-off on Wednesday, and will be hosted by the Australian Institute of Sport. MacDonald, Okwera and Williams will take on New South Wales in their opening game at 12.00pm on Wednesday. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for streaming information.
