Chilliwack’s Wierks named CIS All-Canadian

Her university basketball career is over, but the honours keep coming for the Chilliwack secondary school grad.

Sarah Wierks of the University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team was named a second team All-Canadian at the CIS awards banquet on Wednesday evening in Quebec City.

The Chilliwack native became the first UFV basketball player to be recognized as a CIS All-Canadian, and only the second Cascade across all sports to earn the distinction.

Wierks, a six-foot-two fifth-year centre out of Chilliwack Secondary, led Canada West in scoring at 19.2 points per game.

She set single-season conference records for total rebounds (307) and rebounding average (15.4), and tied the record for double-doubles with 18 in 20 games.

She established single-game marks for offensive rebounds (12), defensive rebounds (20) and total rebounds (31).

To top it off, she ranked second in blocks (2.2 per game) and 11th in steals (2.0 per game) in Canada West this season.
