The Wintec Waikato Bay of Plenty Under 23 teams stepped out on court in Tauranga over the weekend to compete for valuable championship points leading into the main part of the New Zealand Age Group Championships that take place in Wellington July 15-18.
The Wintec WBoP Gold team coached by Mary-Jane Araroa and Rebecca Greenhalgh dominated in all three performances gaining maximum points. The tournament has given the coaching pair opportunity to test different combinations as well as see how players cope under pressure.
A fiercely contested game between the Wintec WBoP Silver team and the Northern B team demonstrated the huge strides of improvement this silver team has made in the last three weeks. The final result tipping in favour of Northern B 47-46 will give the Silver team a boost in confidence as they also continue to build towards the remaining competition games.
