WINDSOR JUNCTION: Two local girls are keeping themselves busy this summer honing their basketball skills as they don the Basketball N.S. jerseys for Team Zinck.

Leah Weatherhead of Windsor Junction and Camryn Giddens of Fall River began playing hoops together with the Fall River Rebels Basketball Association three years ago in the U-12 division. This year, the two were both selected to join the BNS U14 Zinck team. The team is coached by Scott Zinck, while Alyssa Sarka and Aiyanna Empringham are assistant coaches.

The two Grade 7 Georges P. Vanier Junior High students—who are slated to graduate in 2023—jumped right into the BNS season once their Rebels season concluded with a provincial gold medal win.

The duo are the youngest players on the team of 12 girls.

Recently, they traveled with their team to Saco, Maine for a tournament and then went to Toronto on June 16-17 for another tournament.

On June 23, the team is hosting a yard sale/BBQ/car wash at the Halifax Metro Vineyard, 1129 Sackville Drive, Lower Sackville from 9 am – 2 pm.
