Warragul Warriors have returned from a successful country basketball championships campaign, with the under 16 girls' team finishing second in the state.

More than 700 elite players, coaches, team managers and their families from regional Victoria converged on Traralgon for a weekend of fierce basketball competition recently.

Being the flagship event for Basketball Victoria Country, competition was of the highest standard.

The Warriors defeated Maffra, Ballarat and Hamilton to progress to the finals on day two, and continued their unbeaten run with impressive wins over Moe and Shepparton to progress to the grand final.

Having narrowly defeated the Ballarat in the preliminary rounds, the Warriors entered the grand final with confidence, but came up short at the final hurdle to finish runner up.

Ballarat proved stronger second time around, building its lead gradually to win 37-23.

Other Warrior teams progressed to the division two finals, with the under 16 and under 18 boy's teams bowing out in the quarter finals, while the under 18 girl's lost their semi-final.
