Zach & TrentKapiti Basketballers successful fund raising

 By Angelo Robinson

Kapiti basketballers Zach Shearman and Trent Smith, are headed for Las Vegas in July. They are two of 12 Kapiti players selected for the New Zealand Basketball Academy Age Group Representative Teams.

Zach and Trent have got their fundraising underway with a successful Quiz Night held at the Boundary Tap and Kitchen.

The young men, along with their mothers Jacqui Shearman & Margaret Smith, organised a great event. The night  has helped the boys raise much needed funds to help get them to Las Vegas for their Basketball Trip.

Both Zach and Trent are motivated about paying their way to the tournament in the US and have many more fundraising activities planned and underway.

So it’s a busy life fitting in fund raising around their college work and  Representative and NZ Basketball Academy Basketball training sessions.
