Trent, Jon step up for Victoria County

BASKETBALL young guns Jon Sharp and Trent McMullan will represent Victoria Country at the national championships next week.

Starting on Thursday, the pair are bound for Canberra as they take on the best in Australia in the nation’s capital in the under-18s.

McMullan, 17, will captain the side.

The Catholic College Wodonga duo have been vying for selection since October last year and only enhanced their chances after strong performances at January’s Country Cup held on the Border.

They’ve been training for the past six weeks.

The week-long tournament finishes on April 17.
