Local girls basketball club plays in Fraser Valleys, shooting for provincials

Both the senior boys and girls Agassiz elementary secondary school (AESS) basketball teams are heading into Fraser Valley play this year, with the tournaments already in motion as the Observer goes to press.

The senior girls are coming off a successful season, with the team’s efforts earning them a No. 5 place in the single-A provincial rankings.

They have a home game against Maple Ridge Christian Thursday at 6:15 p.m. in the first round.
