It’s been almost two decades since the Senior Girls Basketball team at FSJSS has been as successful as it has this year.

“The whole team is very athletic,” said Suzanne Burck, the team coach.

It’s the incredible team work that Burck credits for their success.

“They all feed off each other and work well as a group,” said Burck.

Capitalising on that team work, the team managed third in zones, losing only to Valemont in the tournament and winning the other three. With their third place finish they have managed to clinch a spot in the provincials this weekend, where they will face some very stiff competition.

The tournament is being hosted by Cedars Christian School in Prince George, and will be held at UNBC, giving the girl a great chance to get a peak at university life.

The girls are facing the best teams in their league, with more players and bigger centres backing them.

The larger teams are a particular difficulty for the Falcons, as they tend to play a quicker game, which can result in a tired team by the last quarter, while the larger teams have the ability to rotate and keep their players fresh, according to Burck.

With the challenge rising in front of them Burck is hopeful that this will be a great learning experience for the girls.

“They learn something new every time we play,” said Burck.
