The Jefferson Parish Recreation Department’s east bank 10-year-old girls all-star basketball team is the International Biddy Champion for 2015. Members of the all-star team were selected from east bank playgrounds in February after the regular Biddy season ended.
In Biddy Basketball, the size of the balls, the height of the goals and the distance of the free throw lines are modified to fit young athletes.
This is the third time the east bank 10-year-old girls have won the International Biddy title. Previous titles were won in 2006 and 2011.
The team averaged 29.5 points per game. This is the first time that any team has swept the MVP award and all three individual competitions.
