All 3 Bullets teams made Finals at the Ballarat Basketball Association 2016-2017 Spring Season, for their respective competitions.
The Under 18 Girls , who were coached by Mrs Colvin, were moved up into a higher division due to their early season strong form. The girls rose to this challenge and after many great games finished the regular season on top of the ladder - a fantastic effort. The girls narrowly lost their Semi Final.
The Under 18 Boys had a great season, despite adding new players to the roster and many players having just gone up an Age Group, they began to develop as a team. As their teamwork and skills developed they steadily worked their way up the ladder to finish 3rd after the regular season finished. Unfortunately the boys, after a big second half comeback narrowly lost their Semi Final. The Under 18 Boys were coached by Mr McKenzie.
The Under 14 Boys team had a great season, which was capped off with winning the Grand Final. The boys under the coaching of senior BALCC students Liam and Isaac developed their skills and team work through many hours of training and regular season games. This paid off as the boys peaked at the right time, and after winning their last game by a considerable margin, scrapped into the Finals by percentage. They won their Semi Final and progressed to the Grand Final. The Grand Final was a nail bitting encounter where the boys who had lead all game, saw the opposition tie the scores with 4 seconds left. Joel C got the ball and quickly dribbled up court, where he was fouled. Joel had 2 shots from the Free Throw line with next to no time left and he calmly made the winning Free Throw to send his team mates and the large supporter base into hysteria. Whilst Joel made the final Free Throw it was truly a team effort which won the day. Well done boys!
