The Present & The Future: 2019 BC Girls All-Star Game Rosters Revealed

The annual end of season All-Star Game has quickly become an integral part of the high school basketball calendar. In one gym, you can see the best of the best of the past season face off against each other one last time. It’s a great cure for the basketball hangover some may feel after the end of provincials in early March.

“I coached the game the last two years, and it’s been fun to see the best players from the Lower Mainland get after it in a fun and unique environment” said Anthony Beyrouti, head coach of the Argyle Pipers. “These kids get to play against each other all the time, it's fun for them to get to play with each other for a night.”

Beyourti will be coaching the Lower Mainland senior team this year. It will once again have the Fraser Valley vs Lower Mainland format, with a “futures” game consisting of grade 11 and younger players, and a game exclusively for graduating seniors.

“We had a pretty good rivalry with McMath the past few years so that will be fun to have them on our side for once” he said on who he’s looking forward to having on his team. “Also we’ve had some big games in North Vancouver with some very talented players so it will be better to have them hitting shots for our team than against our team.”

This year, the game will be held out at Riverside Secondary in Port Coquitlam on April 4th. The futures game will be at 6:00 pm, while the seniors will play starting at 8:00 pm.

“Being a part of this game the last three years has been an honour and I want to thank Paul Langford for coming up with the idea and executing on it at such a high level” said Beyrouti on the organizer and head coach of Riverside Secondary. “The people at Riverside and STM have been great hosts and it should be a fun way to wrap up the high school season and get everyone fired up for their local club seasons!”
