2019 Vince Hickey Winners - Cairns Basketball Association
Basketball Queensland congratulates Cairns Basketball on winning the Vince Hickey Award for Champion Association in the 2019 State Championships. It’s Cairns’ third Vince Hickey Award in total and they have now won three of the last four years. Cairns narrowly scraped home with one point separating them from second-placed Townsville after strong performances in the U14 Boys and U12 Girls winning Gold in both tournaments.
Last year’s champions Townsville finished one-point short of Cairns with their best performance coming early winning Gold in the U18 Girls on the Gold Coast. They also finished runners-up in the U18 Boys and fourth in the U16 Boys and U14 Boys. Southern Districts finished third for the second year running with consistent results across the board. Their best performance came in the U12 Boys at Ipswich with Gold in that event and they also collected Silver in the U14 Boys in Townsville.
