THREE county basketball starlets have been selected to represent Scotland.

Lucy Lemmon, Calumn Sievwright and Isaac Harris, all from East Lothian Dragons, have been picked for their respective age-grade sides.

Lemmon is the club’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) for this year and has earned her place in the Scotland U15 squad, while both Sievwright and Harris are in the U14 squad.

And Lucy was delighted to have been named in the squad.

She told Courier Sport: “I am obsessed with basketball, so being selected for the Scotland under-15 squad is just awesome.

“Playing with the East Lothian Dragons has opened a lot of doors for me and I couldn’t have done it without my coaches and the support of my team mates.”

Dan Givan, the club’s coach, was similarly pleased to have three of the club’s youngsters involved at national level.

He said: “It’s really rewarding seeing our players involved at the highest level of basketball and it inspires our other club members.

“Of course, we have many other Dragons from U10 to U16 playing in regional tournaments and for fun.”

The youngsters will hope to emulate the achievements of another East Lothian ace, whose outstanding performances have seen her called into the Great Britain training squad.

Shawnisay Miller, from Prestonpans, was called into the GB U18 squad following an excellent season with Edinburgh-based outfit Boroughmuir Blaze.

The 16-year-old has been selected for warm-up camps ahead of the FIBA European Championships but will be hoping to earn a place in the final squad.

Meanwhile, Girvan also encouraged anyone who wants to give the sport a try to get in touch.

He added: “We’re always looking for new players who want to play our fun and fast-paced sport and we need more volunteer coaches, particularly to coach sessions to bring our younger players on.”
