Avery Snider with B.C. U-16 team

Isfeld Ice basketball stalwart will be improving her already considerable skills

ISFELD ICE BASKETBALL stalwart Avery Snider will be honing her hoops skills with the U-16 Provincial Team.

Grade 10 Mark Isfeld student athlete Avery Snider will be spending a second straight summer improving her already stellar hoops game. Avery is amongst the top basketball players in British Columbia, this time selected to the U-16 Provincial Team.

This past season at Isfeld, the 5’9″ left-handed Snider started at point guard for the Ice senior girls team (most Grade 10 students play junior sports). Avery helped the senior girls to their most successful season to date, earning all-star honours at the Senior Girls AA Vancouver Island Championships.

Not happy with this level of success, and not using a recently broken thumb as an excuse, Avery is constantly working on her game. Whether it is playing in the boys spring league at Isfeld every Tuesday and Thursday mornings, or in the gym with senior boys coach Tom Elwood every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Snider is relentless in her improvement.

Her senior girls coach, Jouska Lockquell states, “She always strives for excellence, making every moment an opportunity to get better. For a Grade 10 student, her commitment and leadership is amazing.

“I am counting down the days to our first tournament together in December.  For now I will encourage her to enjoy her time with the provincial team. Having an athletic guard like Avery will allow this team to run a fun, up-tempo style”.

Isfeld athletic director Colin Cunningham notes Snider embodies what the Isfeld Athletics Program encourages in all its athletes. “She is an honour roll student, she gives up her time to help others (refereeing countless Grade 8 and 9 games this past season) and she is constantly looking to better herself. She is an all around great person. Good luck this summer, Avery!”
