“Our Junior Blues players earned their Sharpshooter badge in today’s challenge”
“What was most impressive was the number of Blues players that got out and gave this challenge a crack”
“Our players love competing and while today’s challenge was difficult for some it was great to see Alicia Vu from our U14.1 Girls knock down an equal club high 11 threes in a row”
