Albany Basketball Association sent six girls teams away to week two of the Basketball WA State Championships in Perth at the weekend.

Albany was unable to make any grand final across their respective grades but showed plenty of promise.

Four of the six teams finished third in their respective pool standings after the regular games but weren’t able to advance into the semifinals.

In the under-11 division two competition, Albany won three out of their five regular matches to finish third.

The under-13 division two team also finished third after winning half of their qualifying games.

The division three team in the under-13 competition also won two out of their four regular matches.

The under-17 division two side finished third in their pool after winning two of their four games.

After four regular matches in the under-15 division two competition, Albany were unable to record a victory.

Albany won just one game from four in the under-15 division three competition to finish in fifth position.

Albany’s Casey Griffiths, Valerie Corbett and Paige Narkle also played at the championships for Binar.

Griffiths capped off a superb tournament by receiving grand final most valuable player honours in the under-17 division three final, but Binar went down 23-31 to Joondalup Wolves.
