HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Their high school seasons cut short by COVID, Surrey hoops all-stars to hit court one final time

‘Winner’s Circle’ game Friday is a wrap for students who didn’t play much during the pandemic

This Friday night (April 1) will offer one final game for Surrey’s all-star basketball players whose high school-athletics years were cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two teams of Surrey’s best hoopsters will be in action during the annual Winner’s Circle All-Star Basketball Classic game, played at Enver Creek Secondary’s gym (14505 84 Ave., Surrey) starting at 7:30 p.m.

Only a boys game will be played this year, featuring graduating seniors in their final action as high-schoolers on a Surrey court.

The night is also when boys scholarship winners are announced by organizers of Surrey RCMP Classic tournament, played in February this year following a COVID-caused delay. Girls are given scholarships during the annual Surrey Fire Fighters Goodwill Classic, which was played in March this year.
