Kwantlen hosts Holiday Shoot-out

Grade 8 girls high school games played at two Surrey sites.

Almost 300 young basketball players suited up for the Kwantlen Eagles inaugural Grade 8 Girls Basketball Holiday Shoot-out last weekend.

The two-day jamboree featured 18 teams and roughly 270 girls playing three or four games each at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Surrey campus and at Fleetwood Park Secondary. Although the tournament did not rank teams on wins and losses, there were individual awards selected by the coaching staff of the Kwantlen Eagles women’s team.

Zion Corrales Nelson from St. Thomas More Collegiate in Burnaby won the Most Efficient Player award, with the all-star team consisting of Emily Schenk of the Southridge Storm, Isa Nafissi of the Argyle Pipers in North Vancouver, Joy Lin of York House Tigers in Vancouver, Angela Walker of Carson Graham Eagles in North Vancouver, and Ana Lucik of the South Burnaby Metro Club.
