Christian College has had some great success within Basketball this term.
Indiana Schwidlewski, Year 6, has achieved selection to the next round of Victorian State Basketball Trials. Not only does this put him within the top 10 basketballers in Geelong for his age, but the top 64 in Victoria.
Indiana also was selected amongst only twenty-five U14 boys in Geelong for the Regional Academy Basketball Squad.
Indiana is very proud of his success saying ‘I believe if I try my best and work hard enough I can accomplish anything my future brings me. My set goal for myself is to make it into College basketball in America, and if I give 110% I will have more chance of reaching my dreams to play NBA.’
More success in the College came from George Blagojevic, Year 11, who is under consideration for the Australian U19 Squad for 2015 World Championships as well as currently being recruited by several powerful D1 NCAA Schools from America.
George has also recently been inducted into the Barwon Sports Academy (BSA) as part of Basketball Victoria Country (BVC)’s drive to provide elite basketballers with the best support available. He is one of four Geelong players in Basketball Australia’s National High Performance Program.
The selected players have received the scholarship benefits from BSA including access to Strength & Conditioning and Athlete Wellbeing sessions with their ongoing basketball skill development being managed by BVC.
The College congratulates Indiana and George on their ongoing success.
