Rebekah O’Donnell has been rewarded for her hard work with a place in the Under 16 side and will travel to Kalamunda, WA from July 12-19. The team will be looking repeat the success of last year’s group who won the Championship against New South Wales Country.
Rebekah has worked hard on her game over the past few years, she is currently a member of the Under 16.1 Cobras and has been involved in both the Kilsyth and Central National Intensive Training Centre Programs (NITCP) over the past two years.
“Rebekah’s long and athletic frame has made her a great fit in this group. Her skill set is excellent for an athlete of her size and we think she will be a major factor within the team through the preparation and at the National Championships. We are expecting a tough week but the group we have picked has all the pieces to once again be a contender for the title,” said Under 16 Head Coach Ben Cukier.
Kate Ebzery was named a reserve for the Under 18 Victoria Metro side competing in Ballarat from July 5-12 for the Championship. Kate will be a key contributor to help prepare the team as they embark on defending the Under 18 National title for Victoria Metro.
Kate has improved leaps and bounds over the past twelve months as she has grown with different experiences, currently playing with the Under 18.1 Cobras as well as the Youth League women, her game has continued to develop while being part of the NITCP.
“Kate is an excellent athlete who is in a transitional period in her career, from playing mainly in the post to now needing to develop her perimeter skills. She is a really tough kid who leaves everything she has on the court, and this mindset will see her contribute greatly to the team’s preparation,” said Under 18 Head Coach Marissa Fillipou.
Kilsyth Basketball wishes both girls all the best as they work towards their individual and team goals with the Victoria Metro state sides.
