Isfeld Ice basketball point guard Aleah Ashlee will be busy this summer as she as been selected to the U-15 girls provincial team.

Being one of the top 12 athletes of this group age in the province will take her to tournaments around the province, the United States and to the nationals in Newfoundland.

The Mark Isfeld guard and silver honour roll student caught the eyes of the B.C. coaches when she displayed her speed, ball handling and amazing shooting.  Being an aggressive 5′,10″ player, Aleah demonstrated she can play defence not only against small quick guards but also against strong post players.

Making the team was not easy: she accomplished it after successful patella surgery by Dr. Van Sittert, where a ligament was attached to her patella to prevent chromic dislocation. This surgery forced Aleah to step back from her game for eight months.

While her teammates were starting their season, she made the commitment to come back stronger by undertaking an intensive recovery fitness program.  In January, as soon she had her doctor’s OK, she was back in the gym every day, begging for more practice times to her junior girls coach (and father) Grant Ashlee and senior girls coach Jouska Lockquell.

Lockquell can’t talk more highly of this talented athlete: “It is always a joy to see an athletic student walk in our gym, and  it’s a dream to see that student work so hard on the game. Aleah’s passion for the sport is in her core and it’s contagious.”
