It has been a successful season so far for the Agassiz Elementary secondary school (AESS) senior girls basketball team, with the team’s efforts earning them a No. 5 place in the single-A provincial rankings.
The Eagles come off of a weekend tournament win at St. John Brebeuf regional secondary in Abbotsford, their second in as many months after a home tournament win in December.
Last Thursday the AESS squad beat Mission secondary 35-25, Abbotsford Christian 42-29 on Friday and then host team, St. John Brebeuf 50-41 in the final on Saturday.
Hannah Exley, Alyssa Lawley and Sydney VanderWyk won player of the game honours respectively, with Lawley and VanderWyk also named tournament all-stars and Exley securing most valuable player.
The Eagles need to hold onto their second place position or climb to first to be guaranteed a spot in the provincial championships on Mar. 9 to 12 at Duncan Christian school.
The Fraser Valley championships are Feb. 24 to 27.
Tonight the Eagles play at home, hosting Hope secondary for a 6:15 p.m. game.
