DiamondValley players have again featured in selections for Victorian Metro & Country teams to compete in the 2013 National Championships in the U/20 & U/18 age groups. The U/20’s have 4 DV players – Carly Turner ( AIS ) & Jaclyn Smith ( Capt ) and Matt Jackson & Greg Page ( Capt ). Greg recently moved to play SEABL with Knox

U/18’s have 5 players - Amy O’Neil (Capt) & Alexandra Sharp along with Abi Akintola (AIS) and Anthony Karabatsos ( Emerg ) in the boys. Leo Viitala (recently moved to Seymour) was selected to the Vic Country boy’s team

Manager of Basketball Alan McAughtry - “ It is again a testament to the players, families and coaches who put in an amazing amount of time and money to let these players achieve their goals. The club is very proud of these achievements, some have featured in state teams since bottom age U/16s so there is a significant cost and commitment from the families and players “

 “I have witnessed first hand what these kids do to get better and to hone their skills on a weekly basis and on behalf of all of DiamondValley, their domestic clubs and the committee; huge congratulations go out to them. To have the amount of players selected, then to have 3 of them captain their team is a great honor and one that will remain with them throughout their careers
