Senior boys basketball returns to Stanley Humphries Secondary School in Castlegar

It’s been a couple of years since Stanley Humphries Secondary School had a senior boys basketball team, but now the Rockers are back.

Senior boys high school basketball has returned to Castlegar.

It’s been a couple of years since Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) had a senior boys basketball team, but this year the Rockers have taken to the court. Coached by Simon Laurie and Mike Lynn, the team has 13 players in Grades 10, 11 and 12, all of whom played on the junior team.

The SHSS Rockers played their first tournament of the season over the weekend at Mount Sentinel Secondary School, and placed in the top four.

But with an entire season still ahead of the Rockers, the team’s fundraising committee is busy brainstorming ways to help cover costs.

Connie Lew, mother of two of the Rockers and a volunteer on the funding committee, says Castlegar Realty is sponsoring the boys’ jerseys and between Dec. 16 and 23, Monte Carlo Grill will donate 40 per cent of each meal to the team.

The team is also looking for opportunities to give back to the community.

“Now that it is snowing, if people need help we would be willing to come volunteer services. Like if people need walks shovelled,” says Lew. The team can be contacted through SHSS.

Keep an eye on the Castlegar News community calendar (page A8) for the SHSS Rockers’ upcoming games.

“Come on out and support our kids,” says Lew.
