MRBA Victorious!
In February the Keilor Thunder under 16 Representative team held a training day in Woodend with the MRBA All abilities group. The day was sponsored by Maloa House Gourmet Delight who provided a barbecue and drinks for the teams after their session.

Sharing some of their time with the MRBA All Abilities group was a way of the team giving something back to basketball and the community and a great way for the boys to have some fun, we would love to come back for a rematch later in the year.Keilor U16 Coach, Nathan Heywood

The All Abilities program has been running on a Sunday in Woodend since 2009. We have a small but very enthusiastic group of participants who have a great passion for basketball and love competing against visiting teams from time to time.

The All Abilities team went in undermanned as one of their top players, Bradley (Chainsaw), was sidelined with a long term injury and new star Leah was also benched with an injured arm. So it was left to the enthusiasm of Anna and Zach (3pt Zach) to lead the team against the huge U16 boys from Keilor. The game was very intense, going right down to the wire and having to be resolved with a foul point shoot out (as usual). In the end the MRBA All Ability Ranges triumphed by a narrow margin and remain the only undefeated team in the MRBA.
