A handful of local basketball players will spend a good portion of their summer on the hardwood for Team B.C.
Basketball B.C. announced their 2011 provincial age-group teams this past week.
The players survived the tryout process over the past few months to land their roster spots with their respective provincial team programs.
Walnut Grove’s Paul Getz is on the U16 boys’ squad.
On the U15 girls’ blue team is a pair of Brookswood Bobcats, Jessie Brown and Tayla Jackson, while the U15 red team has one of their high school teammates, Marissa Van Noort.
Hannah Loewen suits up for the U14 white team, which will be coached by Trinity Western Spartans’ Cheryl Jean-Paul.
And Katelyn Punia, who attends Surrey’s Southridge Secondary, is on the U14 blue team.
