Tuchscherer sisters make Team B.C. basketball rosters

The teenagers were among 24 players named to U-17 and U-15 rosters by Basketball B.C.

Basketball B.C has announced the rosters for two provincial teams that will hit the court this summer, and two Chilliwack players are in the mix.

Sisters Deanna and Julia Tuchscherer have earned spots, Deanna on the U-17 squad and Julia on the U-15 team.

The U-17 roster is 12 strong with four alternates and includes Kamloopsians Madison Gobeil and Olivia Morgan-Cherchas, whose South Kamloops Titans topped Deanna’s GW Graham Grizzlies in last month’s AA provincial championship game.

The U-17s will be coached by Trinity Western University bench boss Cheryl Jean Paul, assisted by one of her current players, Breanna Cabuco, and former professional basketball player Breanne Watson.

The U-15s will be guided by Leanne Evans, an assistant coach for the University of the Victoria women’s b-ball team. She returns for a second time after guiding the 2017 team to a fourth place finish at nationals.
