Rep teams ready for CDC test

BASKETBALL: Most of the junior Gladstone representative basketball teams have been finalised ahead of the CDC Basketball Carnival which commences this weekend in Rockhampton for the under-18 boys and girls teams.

Gladstone's under-18 boy's team opens its account against Rockhampton's number two side tomorrow from 9.30am.

The team will then need to back it up against Emerald at 12.30pm.

Some of the players who will be keys for Gladstone are centre Mitchell Knight, Boti Hajos and Lee Gillett.

Gladstone has an early start on Sunday with an 8am fixture against Bundaberg before rounding out the carnival against the number one Rockhampton team.

The girls have a challenging assignment against Rockhampton in its only two games tomorrow, but have more than capable players in multi-talented Zoe Calis.

The second round of the CDC competition is in Gladstone on October 29 and 30 which will involve Gladstone's under-18 and under-16 boy's and girl's teams.
