BCSS girls having fine season

Sports programs in a small school show success because of the heart and passion of the players and coaches.

The Boundary Central Secondary School senior girls are busy preparing for the Kootenay single A championships this weekend in Nakusp. The Roadrunners are getting in a few last free throws and three pointers before heading off Friday for a chance at winning the zone championship and possibly securing a provincial berth.

The Roadrunners have had a great season so far under the tutelage of coach Lisa Baia. This past weekend they won two of three games at the Castlegar tournament to finish a strong third. The weekend before they won their own home tournament with four wins against the likes of Osoyoos, Nakusp and Grand Forks.

For a team from a small community, the BCSS girls have gelled and played strong all year. The Roadrunners have shown a lot of grit and determination in beating double A teams from bigger centres such as Trail and Osoyoos.

The team has a good veteran core featuring four Grade 12s and two Grade 11s joined by five enthusiastic Grade 10s.

The team has been in three tournaments this year, finishing in the top four in each one.

Look for the Roadrunners to make a strong showing at the regional playoffs as they go toe to toe with the other top single A teams in the Kootenays.
