The 2013 Junior State Cup was held on Friday 5 July, Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July. We saw 8 Top Gun referees attending this tournament under the watchful eye of Mack Hoverman (Top Gun Co ordinator) and coach Ken Chan. They were Bec Cooper, Sally Searle, Jai Keepa, Michael Hegarty, Farren Buckley, Braelan Renton, Nick Sheehan, Jarrod Sheehan. We had Ellie Slinger attending and helping out with the Top Guns over the weekend.
The BMTA referees were well represented when it was finals day, the State Director of referees announced the finals appointments and up grades early Sunday morning. Congratulations to our home product of the up and coming female referee Ellie Slinger for achieving her Level 3 badge.
The Bullets were firing for the Top Guns when Dave Field read out the final referees, Bec Cooper scored the Boys 10 Final, Sally Searle Boys 12 Final. Well done girls. BMTA were on a roll when we saw Rob Cooper appointed to the Boys 14 final, Ken Chan Girls 16 Final, Mack Hoverman Boys 16 Final and Liam Cooper to the Boys 18 final. What a great tournament for the BMTA referees. I'm sure the rest of the contingent from the Top Gun program have come away with experience. Congratulations to Dave Sheehan for attending his first State event.
A Huge thanks to Mack Hoverman and Ken Chan in organising the Top Guns over the 3 days.
