Van Boven leads DCS junior girls

Rachelle Van Boven was named to the tournament all-star team last weekend after host Duncan Christian School finished ninth in the B.C. Christian Schools junior girls basketball championship.

Van Boven averaged just under 10 points in the Chargers’ four games at the tournament, which was held over three days at DCS and the Island Savings Centre, and was responsible for more than half of her team’s scoring.

Her biggest performance came in the ninth-place game, when she scored 19 points in a 31-26 win over Comox’s Gateway Christian. Teammates Rebecca Bakker and Jenna Bakker also had tournament highs, with six and five points respectively.

The Chargers lost their first three games of the tournament to Campbell River, Surrey and Unity Christian schools. Van Boven led the team in scoring against Campbell River, with 11 points, and Surrey, with six, while the Bakkers had a team high four each against Unity.

Abbotsford’s Mennonite Educational Institute won the championship, beating Langley Christian 46-31 in the final.
