A pair of teammates with the Walnut Grove Gators will be joining forces this summer as part of Basketball BC’s U17 boys team.

Bryce Derton and Tyler Anderson were among the 12 players named to the roster earlier this month.

Derton is a six-foot-three small forward while Anderson is a six-foot-five power forward.

Both are entering Grade 12 next year.

And Walnut Grove’s Daniel Stead will be announced as part of Basketball BC’s U16 provincial team.

The tryouts for both teams were held earlier this month.

Stead enters Grade 11 in the fall and will join Derton and Anderson on the senior Gators squad. He was named an all-star at the B.C. junior boys provincial championships this past season.
