AESS senior girls have a shot at provincials

The basketball team is one game away from a spot at provincials

The Senior girl’s basketball team is one game away from a trip to the provincials.

After a great season, the AESS senior team is sitting in second place. They have one final game tomorrow evening to see who takes a coveted spot at the provincial finals. They will be playing the third place team, Credo Christian School in Langley.

The AESS team has beat Credo two times this year.

“They’re a good match for us,” comments coach Greg Lawley.

Lawley says the team has been practicing a lot this year, including some who have been playing since before the season began with the Jr. Cascades program out of UFV.

“The kids have been working hard,” says Lawley. “We’ve got a good chance. We just have to make sure we work hard through the week.”

The team had an exhibition game last Friday and had several practices scheduled for this week.

“We haven’t had a chance to go to provincials since 2006,” says Lawley. It will be all new for his students and he hopes they win and get the opportunity to compete at the next level.

The provincials will be held in Lumby, March 4-7.
