Stars come out to support home squad

There was plenty of star power both on and off the court at the Castec Rural and OneFortyOne Pioneers home games on the weekend.

State Liberal Leader David Speirs kicked off his weekend by attending Friday night’s Wulanda match against the Knox Raiders.

Mr Speirs was joined by local Liberal MLC Ben Hood courtside to cheer on the Mount Gambier sides.

On Saturday night Mount Gambier rolled out the red carpet for Australian basketball royalty Andrew Gaze, who led his Melbourne Tigers side to victory over the Pioneers men.

Gaze’s son Mason also took the court for the Tigers, alongside Austin Bradtke, son of Gaze Senior’s former teammate Mark Bradtke.

And Melbourne’s Felix Von Hofe added a bit of razzle dazzle to the court, having starred in reality tv show The Bachelor in 2023.

The women’s side also had its share of stars, with Australian NBA star Josh Giddey’s sister Hannah taking the court for the Tigers, along with Pioneers captain Isabella Brancatisano’s sister Charlotte.
