WLSS will be joined by College Heights, DP Todd, Kelly Road, Duchess Park and Nechako Valley for the tournament, which begins Thursday and wraps up Saturday evening at the WLSS gym.
Coaches Tara Burtenshaw and Raj Lalli, who’ve helped aid the chemistry between the players since their grade-eight seasons, will lead the Thunder into zones.
This year WLSS has set their goals even higher.
Role players Montana Reid, Latasha Diaz and Ana Lomavatu will be looked to for leadership this weekend.
The Thunder open their tournament Thursday at 3 p.m. versus College Heights. Games Friday and Saturday depend on the outcome’s of Thursday’s matchups.
