Wednesday, 12th May, 2010
Local boy Isaac Cumming has been selected to play for the NSW State Primary School's Sports Association's (PSSA) basketball team in Darwin this August.
The Morgan Street Public School student was "over the moon" and "looking forward to the challenges coming up", according to his mother Melissa.
Isaac won selection for his perfomance at the NSW PSSA basketball carnival last week in Sydney.
"Isaac played awesomely at the Sydney carnival, and to be one of only ten selected out 140 players is a great achievement," said Barrier Boys Basketball coach Sharon Degoumois.
He is the first local picked for the State side since Heath Caldwell in 2005.
Isaac's family will be holding several small fundraising activites to help with the $1400 cost of the trip.
Two-dollar raffle tickets are on sale at shops around Broken Hill, with prizes ranging from a laptop to a flat screen TV.
The National Championship run from August 7 to 13.
