Wolves taste success

Warrane-based Southern Wolves Basketball Club has impressed at all levels during the Tasmanian Senior Basketball League South season finals, with multiple teams claiming silverware for the Eastern Shore club.

The senior women’s side won the title, with Ellie Collins named the league’s 2023 Most Valuable Player. While the senior men’s team missed out on a grand final berth by just three points, Wolves players Tiri Masunda and Mike Karen were awarded MVP and MVP runner-up respectively.

MVP Jaxsyn Collins led the Southern Wolves’ senior reserves men to a championship; and the senior reserve women were runners up with Maya Armstrong awarded MVP.

Club president Charlotte Collins said the results were a huge statement from Southern Wolves and a testament to the hard work going on behind the scenes at the club.

“During the past few seasons our playing list has doubled in size and we have garnered a very large following,” she said.

“In the past we have been named Junior Club of the Year and have had the most state team representatives.”

Ms Collins said the Southern Wolves basketball program has been driven by some highly regarded senior players and coaches who have passed on their knowledge to the next generation of prospects.

“We employed some highly respected coaches with experience at Basketball Tasmania who guided our successful season,” she said.

“Our senior program had some great leaders who have competed in national leagues and represented Tasmania such as Ellie Collins, Tayla Roberts, BJ Radcliffe and Tiri Masunda.”
