On Saturday night, our senior players, coaches, officials and community members were able to let their hair down to celebrate the 2023 Season, one of our best yet. This was a long season of hard work and dedication, which saw incredible results across the board. Well done to all, and we look forward to seeing you in 2024.
We also acknowledged the retirement of two major legends in Hornets history. Wendy Strong has made the decision to retire this year, hanging up the boots after representing Hills Basketball first in 1996. Now, with over 150 games under her belt in the top league, Wendy has been an incredible role model for young girls in basketball and with 4 children of her own, Wendy teaches us all so much about doing what you love. Paul Brotherson has also announced his retirement, with an interstate move on the horizon. Paul grew up at Hills Basketball, gaining a reputation for being an amazing player and even better person. Paul regularly donates his time to Junior teams and has always been willing to help out. Whilst we hope his career is not done with us forever, we’ll always welcome him back in whatever capacity. We are all incredibly thankful for both Wendy and Paul for their amazing contribution and hope to see them around the HIVE.
A special thank you to all the staff who make this possible and our sponsors for their continued support.
