Basketball WA State Championships: Lakeside Lightning under-11 boys win division one

THE Lakeside Lightning juniors have continued their successful run at the Basketball WA State Championships, taking out the under-11 boys division one title in the second week of competition.

Going up against basketball powerhouse Willetton in the grand final, the game was a tight arm wrestle from beginning to end, with Lakeside managing to keep the lead for all but a few minutes in the middle of the game.

A big eight-point game from Logan Grida, which included an impressive four made free throws, helped get Lakeside over the line 29-22.

Lakeside could have made it three grand final wins from three, but the division two under-11 boys went down 17-15 against Perry Lakes and the division three under-11 girls team went down 9-8 against Willetton.

The Basketball WA State Championships conclude this weekend.
