The Stanley Humphries Secondary junior girls basketball team will be traveling to the south Okanagan this weekend to take on many of the province’s best teams at a prestigious tournament in Penticton.

“It’ll be a great chance for the girls,” said co-coach Kim Matson.

“The number one ranked team, W.J. Mouat from Abbotsford, is there and they’re supposed to be unbelievably good.”

The Rockers start play Friday afternoon against the host Penticton Lakers who were an honourable mention in the last ranking.

“Playing the host team first will be challenging,” said Matson. “You know they’ll likely have the stands packed with students cheering them on. But our girls have really been working hard and improving so it should be a good game.”

Other top teams at the tournament include #8 Mount Baker from Cranbrook, #10 Kelowna and #13 Handsworth from North Vancouver.
