Benalla trio rise for championship success

By Benalla Ensign

Benalla basketball trio Remi Nicholas, Reese Gilbert and Milly Evans have capped off a stellar season with North East Bushrangers, beating Altona 42-35 in the Victorian Junior Basketball League Grand Final at Werribee last weekend.

Remi, Reese  and Milly have put together an almighty season with the Bushrangers, playing 32 games — most of which are played in Melbourne on a Friday night — with their hard work resulting in a championship title.

North East Bushrangers also held their presentation night earlier this month, with two local Benalla players — Cooper Nichols and Hamish Teichert — taking home awards.

Cooper took out the Most Valuable Player award in the Boys' U18 Division 2 team, while Hamish claimed the Coaches' Award for his hard work in the Boys' U18 Division 1 side. 

Hamish Teichert took home the Coaches' Awards at the Bushrangers' recent presentation night.

Congratulations to all Benalla players involved in this season with the Bushies: Cooper Nichols, Hamish Teichert, Thomas Hill, Tom Riley, Tayissa Gray, Zach Schluter, Remi Nicholas, Reese Gilbert and Milly Evans.

Benalla Basketball Association is proud of your efforts.
