It's One tournament down (the Junior Boys having just brought their trip to Langley to an end) and one just underway, as the Charles Hays Senior Girls are the next basketball team up from the North Coast ready to take on all comers, this time at the AA Girls Provincials.
The Langley Entertainment Complex once again plays the host as the best in BC Girls High School Basketball take to the court from today through to Saturday's finale.
The Senior girls claimed their NorthWest Zones title ten days ago and since then have been in preparation mode as head coach Anna Ashley and Assistant coach Sarah McChesney worked them through practice sessions in the lead up to their trek south of Monday.
