Team hits 6-1 record for Fall 2007
November 29, 2007
At this time last year, the Camosun College Chargers women’s basketball team had no wins and seven losses placing them last in the league. This year is a completely different story as the squad ends the first half of the 2007-08 season with a 6-1 record, making them the #2 team in the British Columbia Colleges’ Athletic Association (BCCAA) and #7 on the national front, in the Canadian Colleges’ Athletic Association (CCAA).
The Chargers’ only loss this semester occurred on the weekend to the top ranked BCCAA team, the University of British Columbia – Okanagan Lakers. The hailing team defeated the Chargers 61-52.
“Okanagan is an experienced group and played well. We now know where we need to go to step up our game”, explained Chargers head coach Brett Westcott.
The Chargers men are 4-3 at the end of the season, placing them third in the BCCAA.
Seven Camosun student-athletes are listed in the top ten individuals in the league for points, assists and rebounds.
