THE Somerset Basketball Club can look forward to many successful years on the court if they keep producing players such as Courtney Middap.

This year’s The Advocate IGA Junior Sports Award female individual winner, Courtney has hardly had time to sit down and reflect on her achievements throughout 2012.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of the year was in June when she was selected for Australia’s under-17 women’s 3×3 team at the Oceania tournament in Coffs Harbour.

Australia took out the bronze medal at the event, with Courtney also picking up a gold medal in the foul-shooting competition.

At a state level, the 14-year-old was selected in the Tasmanian under-16 team that competed at the national championships and Australian Country Cup.

In September, Courtney attended an Australian Institute of Sport development camp, with players invited being eligible for the 2014 under-17 world championships.

Courtney is also a Tasmanian Institute of Sport scholarship holder and will head to the US with the group in December for a three-week tour of Texas, where they will play college teams.

She still found time in her busy schedule to represent Somerset in the NWBU senior women’s roster, as well as the club’s under-16 team, which took out the state championship.
