Chargers earn split

Trio of Oak Bay High grads play key roles with Camosun women's basketball team this season

Camosun Chargers Ali Cooper of Oak Bay takes the ball past Capilano Blue Katrin Sandbichler during weekend action.

A trio of Oak Bay High grads took to the court for the Camosun Chargers for the women’s basketball season opener last weekend.

First-year students Ali Cooper and Aija Salvador alongside second-year Kelly Young had an up-and-down weekend with the women’s Camosun Chargers as they hosted the Capilano Blues and the Quest University Canada Kermodes.

The Chargers edged the North Vancouver-based Blues 75-70 Friday before falling to Squamish 70-60 on Saturday.

The Camosun squad visits Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey Friday and then the women and men’s teams head up to Abbotsford Saturday where they face Columbia Bible College.

Capital Region fans won’t get an opportunity to see the locals in action again until the new year when both Chargers teams will host Island rivals, Vancouver Island University Mariners.
