14.1 Girls ready to make some noise at Classic
Our 14.1 Girls’ tournament opener at the National Junior Classic is just over 12 hours away now, and the countdown is well and truly on for coach Cara Jeffers and her team.
The Dragons have no VJBL commitments tonight, so Cara’s focus this week has been on achieving big things with this exciting young group at the Classic.
“I could not be prouder of this group,” she said. “They’re a coach’s dream, hard workers, great group off the court and they strive to improve individually and as a team. The connection they have has certainly been a huge factor in our achievements so far.
“We’ve worked really hard this season as a group to achieve what we have. We intend to really challenge teams at The Classic to push for a medal placing.”
The Dragons will finish their VJBL campaign three months from now as one of the top 10 teams in the state after impressing during the first half of the season, but for the time being at least, their Friday night commitments can wait.
Their challenge this week is to make some noise against the best teams in Australia, and Cara appreciates the significance of the occasion.
“To represent Camberwell at the tournament is something we’re proud of,” she said. “And we cannot wait to put our best foot forward against the best teams in the country.”
The Dragons are in Pool B with local rival Nunawading, West Adelaide Bearcats and Moe Meteors and will launch their Classic campaign against the Spectres at Dandenong tomorrow morning (Saturday, 8.30am).
It’ll be the start of a busy day for our girls, with games to follow against West Adelaide (1.50pm) and Moe Meteors (7.10pm) – those two games also at Dandenong.
