Maddy Gobeil of Kamloops has committed to play basketball for the Fraser Valley Cascades of Abbotsford.
The South Kamloops Titans’ guard, who helped her team win the provincial AA girls’ title earlier this year in Langley, will join the Cascades in time for the 2019-2020 Canada West campaign.
Fraser Valley is loading up on talent.
Gobeil, who was named MVP of the provincial championship in March, will be joined by forward Deanna Tuchscherer, a standout forward with the G.W. Graham Grizzlies, the Chilliwack-based school that fell 73-67 in overtime to South Kam in the 2018 B.C. final.
Tuchscherer’s father, Al, coaches the Cascades, who have also recruited sought-after guards Nikki Cabuco of Coquitlam’s Charles Best and Jessica Parker of Port Coquitlam’s Riverside.
Tuchscherer and Gobeil have played together on provincial and club teams.
Gobeil and 6-foot-6 UBC-bound Olivia Morgan-Cherchas, both in their Grade 12 seasons with the Titans, will be leading South Kam on its quest to repeat.
