Tweedsmuir athletes excel

Two local athletes helped represent B.C. at the national Flag Football championships in Nova Scotia earlier this summer.

Two local athletes helped represent B.C. at the national Flag Football championships in Nova Scotia earlier this summer.

Jalen Jana and K.J. Johnson, both Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary students, are members of the Coquitlam Falcons, a U16 flag football team that advanced to the nationals in July after winning the provincials.

They were the only Surrey boys on the team.

The Falcons beat Alberta 48 to 12 at the event, held late last month.

Jana, who will enter Grade 10 this fall at LTS (Johnson is in Grade 9), was also the point guard for the U15 Team B.C. basketball team, which won a silver in Toronto Aug. 6, where he was also named 1st team all-star.

As an all-star, Jana will be invited to try out next year with the National Cadet U16 Men’s basketball team.

His performance earned notice as a standout in Crown Magazine, which praised his speed and handling of the ball during game one at the tournament, eventually earning him the Player of the Game award.
