Yarrow’s Lenz sisters lead Abbotsford Panthers at provincials

Marin and Sienna Lenz were offensive drivers for the third place finisher at AAA championships.

Yarrow natives Marin and Sienna Lenz helped the Abbotsford Panthers to a third place finish at the AAA B.C. High School Senior Girls Basketball Championships, held last weekend at the Langley Events Centre.

Sienna, a Grade 12 guard, and Marin, a Grade 10 guard, were the offensive drivers in a one-sided tournament-opening win over North Peace (Fort St. John) last Thursday.

Sienna had 35 points and Marin added 20 in a 101-43 drubbing.

That victory sent them on to a quarter-final matchup with Surrey’s Sullivan Heights Stars.

The Lenz sisters combined for 44 points (23 Marin, 21 Sienna) in a 63-55 win.

Sadly, Langley’s Walnut Grove Gators were able to stop the Panthers in a semi-final, winning 88-71, but Sienna’s final game was a win as her team bounced Semiahmoo 82-74 in Saturday’s third versus fourth game.
