In a fantastic couple of days, Angus Brandt has produced an amazing performance for the Panthers Championship Men v Sutherland and then been included into the Australian Boomers squad for the upcoming World Cup. His fans and friends at Penrith send their congratulations for this wonderful achievement.
Last Saturday night, a classy Angus Brandt produced an amazing show of strength, skill and leadership in the Panthers Championship Men’s clash with the Sutherland Sharks to almost steal the show, producing game statistics of 11 of 19 2pt shots, 2 of 2 3pt shots and 12 of 13 Free Throws for 40pts..
After another succesful term of Learn 2 Play and Pink Ball classes, term 3 is expected to be just as fun filled! But this term will also mark the start of a NEW Class called PDBA Development-League!!! Click on more to find the Calendars inside.
Panthers Championship Men is hopefully going to get a fantastic boost for this Sundays 1.00pm clash with the Manly Sea Eagles with the possible return of centre Angus Brandt, who has just returned from China after competing for Australia in the four game series.
Timing could not have been better with several key players unavailable to play over the next month or so due to study, holidays and travel. Angus has been on scholarship at Oregan State University USA for the past 3 years and has now returned to Australia hoping to sign with an NBL team. It will be great to have both of the Brandt boys on court together in Penrith colours again. Come along and support the team at the stadium on Sunday.
Tahlia Tupaea will head off to the Czech Republic for her second World Championships, this time in her true age group the U17′s.
After competing successfully in the U19 Worlds last year as a 16yo and winning a bronze medal, Tahlia is keen to lead her U17 team to a medal too and will be one of the dominant guards at the tournament.
She is looking forward to playing with this group of girls who have all been developed over the past 2 years at Australian junior camps and who she has developed some great on court chemistry and off court friendships.
All of her team mates, friends and supporters at Penrith will be cheering her on. Tahlia will play her last game in our Championship Women’s team before leaving for the World Championships in mid June, this Saturday at 6.00pm.
It is exciting to announce that four of our U16 Panthers have been selected in the NSW Metro sides to compete at the Australian U16 Championships in Geelong this July.
Josh Green, Josh Kalwy and Kevin Achampong form a strong contingent for the U16Men and Bri Letta will make her State debut for the U16Women with her Panthers team mate Binta Salawu being named as a reserve.
