A pair of Walnut Grove Gators have landed spots with Basketball BC’s U15 program for the summer.

Andrew Goertzen has been selected for the boys’ U15 Blue team while Brett Christensen was named to the U15 Red squad.

The pair made the rosters after a grueling three-day tryout process last month. Even more impressive was the fact the tryout also came immediately after they helped the Fraser Valley Volleyball Club team finish fourth at the U15 national championships in Regina.

Both are Grade 9 players on the Gators junior boys team which finished fourth at the provincial championships this past season.
