Under 14 team win Cambridge Central Venue League and Playoff final

East Cambs Basketball Club under 14 team were crowned League and tournament champions on Sunday 17th March 2024 at Long Road College.  They have been competing all season long in the Cambridge Cats Central Venue League.

A tough season which began in October showed them win the league with only 2 games lost and went into the end of season tournament as favourites to do the double.  A close semi-final against Cambridge Cats 1 saw the Warriors win the game 17-14 in a tough encounter.  The final against Linton was a different story with the Warriors in front from start to finish in the end winning 39-25.  Most Valuable Player of the game and the tournament was Warriors player Caleb Vickers who had an outstanding game on both ends of the floor leading all scorers with 14 points.

Jacob Knapper, Aiden McLean and Sam Matsumoto were also voted to the league All-Star team selected by club coaches and tournament organisers.

Head Coach Rob Knapper said “It has been great to see the journey that these young men have been on this season.  They have worked hard in training and have gelled as a team on and off the court.  All the hard work has paid off with them winning not only the league but also the end of season tournament.  To have 3 of the boys voted as All Stars is fantastic and for Caleb who is one of the members of the under 12 team.
