As long as the kids keep playing basketball, MLA Rice will have something to share with the Legislature

North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice celebrating the success of the
Charles Hays Senior Girls Basketball team after winning NW Zones

Should things not work out as she might hope come May, North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice might be able to swing a spot as a Sports Reporter somewhere ( perhaps NBA TV?), such has been the flow of Basketball updates that the MLA has provided to the Legislature in the last week.

As we noted last week, Ms. Rice made a pair of appearances in the Legislature to share of the exploits of the participants in the All Native Tournament, following the conclusion of another successful week long festival of basketball and celebration of First Nations communities in Prince Rupert.

This week begins with the MLA providing the Legislature with some notes on the success of the Charles Hays Senior Girls Basketball team as they make their way to Langley for the AA Provincials this week.

"I've started a bit of a trend here that I truly cannot stop. I need to mention that last weekend, the Charles Hays girls basketball team won the zone championships, which they hosted in Prince Rupert. They played two hard-fought games against Caledonia Secondary School and Smithers. 

As well, I'l like to acknowledge that Ruby Mason was named the MVP of the tournament, while Britanny Waite and Carly Cochrane were named the all-stars. I would like to acknowledge more basketball players in my rinding and thank you very much"

The Senior Girls will launch their quest for a Provincial banner tomorrow afternoon, with their opening game at the tournament against Vernon.

Still to come on Live from the Leg, shout outs for the Junior Boys who wrap up their tournament in Langley today and the Senior Boys Rainmakers, who will travel to the AAA Provincials next week for the March 8-11 showcase event for high school basketball.

You can review the comments from the Legislature record here, and tune into to the Legislature Sports Beat from the Chamber Video for Monday afternoon, starting at the 10 minute mark.
