JUNE LONG WEEKEND | HORNETS HEAD TO MELBOURNE

All 24 of our Junior Representative Teams have now been locked in to head down to Melbourne to compete in tournaments over the June long weekend.

4 teams have qualified for the National Junior Classic, in which 128 of the best teams across Australia compete and are invited based on performance in the first half of the calendar year. Our U12 Girls Premier, U14 Boys Premier, U16 Girls Premier and U18 Girls Premier have all been selected and we can`t wait to see what they can do!

All other teams will be headed to the Nunawading Tournament. These are excellent opportunities for our athletes to bond and learn as they take on various teams from around the country.

We`re excited to see how each team will go and wish them all good luck in their efforts.

Go Hornets! #WriteTheFuture

WEEKEND WRAP-UP | NBL1 & SENIOR LEAGUE

It has been a HUGE weekend for our Hills Hornets teams, with a double-header in the HIVE for Pink Round!

Saturday brought the HIVE alive as we took on the Illawarra Hawks. The Youth Men 1 took out a tight game against Illawarra, with Ethan Moss top-scoring on 27 points. Our Youth Women 1 also got the win, as Chelsea Hudson led the pack on 22 points. Our Youth Women 2 took on St George, with dominant performances from Sophie Taggart and Leah Fowler.

Our NBL1 Women then took on the Illawarra Hawks and brought the intensity. Rachel Mclimore flaunted her 3-point shooting skills, earning 21 pts, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. Ella Leasuasu also played a significant role in the win, with 13 pts, 5 rebounds & 2 steals. Meanwhile, our NBL1 Men had an epic game, with Ishmael Sanders top-scoring on 26 points. The combination of young players in Mitch Smith and Jamie Munro proved to be lethal against Illawarra.

Sunday saw our NBL1 Women pull through in the final minutes, earning the win by just 4 points. Emma Kary led the momentum shift that wins the game, with 27 pts, 7 rebound and 2 assists. Meanwhile, Taylah Moss dominated in the final quarter to bring us home. The NBL1 Men unfortunately lost to Canberra Gunners, but performed against a tough match-up. Our Waratah Men also took home a win, in their 2023 Grand Final rematch. Meanwhile, Lav Banjac had an insane 28 points in our Youth Men 2 game against Hawkesbury.

We can’t wait to see you back in the HIVE for our next home game on June 2!

PINK ROUND | JOANNE TAYLOR

For those of you who haven`t had the pleasure of meeting her, this is the lovely Joanne Taylor. She`s been a member of the Hills Basketball community for over 20 years now, first as a parent, manager and eventually as a very valued staff member. In 2008, Jo was diagnosed with breast cancer, after diligently following up with doctors and checkups. The diagnosis turned her life upside down for some time, forcing her to leave her job and drop everything to fight the cancer. At the time, her daughter Aidan - our current U12 Girls 2 Assistant Coach - was only 12 years old and playing in our Representative program. Whilst her initial cancer could be removed through surgery, Jo had to receive ongoing treatment for almost 15 years. Everyone who has ever met Jo, loves her. She`s got an energy and sparkle like no other, and whilst she doesn`t like the term `survivor`, she is that and more.

We asked Jo to share her story because it`s unfortunately common. 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Australia in their lifetime, along with 1 in 500 men. This week for Pink Round, we`re hoping to raise money & raise awareness for a cause that is close to the hearts of many in our community.

HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?

PINK SOCKS | Pink socks are available to purchase at the Hills Basketball Stadium reception, with all profits going to BCNA.

WEAR PINK | All Local Competition and Representative players are encouraged to wear PINK in their games this week, to raise awareness for such a great cause.

MAKE A DONATION | All donations made online through our NBL1 ticketing system will go in the draw to win a ‘Pink Hamper’ with goodies from Bunnings, City Cave, Endota Spa & MORE!

BUY TICKETS | All tickets purchased online for our NBL1 Double Header will go in the draw to win a Mitsubishi ASX GS.

GET CHECKED | There are plenty of ways to stay diligent, including regular mammograms, at-home checks and screening at your local doctor.

ANZAC ROUND | WRAP-UP

It has been a HUGE weekend for our Hills Hornets teams, with a double-header and our first games in the HIVE, the season is well and truly underway!

Our NBL1 Women brought the fight to the Panthers on Friday night, unfortunately unable to come away with the win against a tough team now lead by Tahlia Tupaea. A special mention to Emma Kary who walked away with 19 points, 5 rebounds & 4 assists. Meanwhile our NBL1 Men brought home the win at Penrith, with Ishmael Sanders accepting the ANZAC Round award for his efforts (36 pts, 2 reb, 3 ast).

Saturday brought the HIVE alive with our very first home games. The energy was electric in our Youth League Men 1 game, which had a nail-biting 2 point ending. Despite injury in the second half that kept him out of the game, Josh Morgan still managed an epic 25 points. Our Youth League Women 1 and 2 had convincing wins over Penrith and Moss Vale, demonstrating the strength of our women`s program coming through the ranks. The Waratah Men took on Springwood with a steady lead throughout, however Ben Graham took it home with 22 points. Our NBL1 Women then took on the up & comers from the COE, who have no shortage of talent, however our girls didn`t make it easy. Hannah Griffin showed off her skills, earning 12 points, 3 assists and 1 steal. Meanwhile, our NBL1 Men pulled through in the final minutes, earning the win by just 1 point. Chris Bryant was honoured with the ANZAC Round medal for his epic game, with 26 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks.

We can`t wait to see you back in the HIVE next weekend for our Double Header Pink Round.
