The Falcons Senior Girls Basketball team will be heading on to provincials in Lumby.

The team earned a spot in the provincial tournament  during the regional tournament in Bella Coola.

The team played five games, winning four, and took third place overall.

Cedars Christian School of Prince George came in first and Fraser Lake was second.

Coach Suzanne Burck said the community of Bella Coola did a fabulous job welcoming the team to the community.

Fort St. James player Carmen Bennison was selected as a first team all-star, a group of five players who stood out through the tournament, selected by all the coaches.

Hannah Burgart was chosen as a second team all-star.

There were over 100 players in the tournament, so Burck said it was “quite an honour” for Bennison and Burgart to be chosen.

The team heads down to play in the provincials in Lumby in the Single ‘A’ group, seeded 13 out of 16 spots in the tournament.
