Langley quartet selected for all-star game

Four local players have been selected for the annual B.C. high school basketball all-star games.

The games will be played on Saturday (April 21) at UBC and two male and two female players from three Langley high schools have garnered invitations.

Playing in the boys’ game will be a pair of Walnut Grove Gators — Ethan McKean and De’Sean Monsanto.

The pair helped Walnut Grove to a second-place finish at last month’s B.C. AAA championships.

McKean was a second team all-star while Monsanto was a third-team all-star and the tournament’s top defensive player. McKean will play for Douglas College next season.

They will play on opposite teams in Saturday’s game, which begins at 3 p.m.

Twenty-two players were selected for the boys’ game while 26 where chosen for the girls’ game.

Among those are Credo Christian Kodiaks’ Carolyn DeLeeuw and Brookswood Bobcats’ Luca Schmidt.

Schmidt helped Brookswood place fourth at the AAA tournament and was a first team all-star.

She will join the Trinity Western Spartans program in the fall.

DeLeeuw and the Kodiaks finished sixth at the Single A championships.

The girls game will tip off at 1:30 p.m.
