We had the opportunity to spend the last week in Wood Buffalo (Fort McMurray) Alberta at the Western Canadian Summer Games. The organizers of the event did a great job. Each event was well organized and the facilities were great. The opening ceremonies were great to watch!
The purpose for us to be at the games was to watch our daughter, Tia Heggie, play with the U16 Basketball Alberta women’s team. We are very proud of Tia and her team. They fought through some tough games and finished fourth overall.
These are some highlights of Tia in her first three games
Tia and her team had a great season of basketball in 2014/2015. Tia was the point guard of the team and is looking forward to entering high school next year to play at the next level. This summer she is playing for Basketball Alberta again on the U16 Girls team. They will be playing in the Seattle Summer Showcase from July 10-12, 2015 and then will be headed north to Langley BC for some exhibition games. After these games their next big event is the Western Canadian Summer Games in Wood Buffalo AB that begin on August 7.
This is a highlight video of Tia with her Grade 9 Cardston Cougar Team.
This spring Tia also made the University of Lethbridge PEBL (Prairie Elite Basketball League) U17 team. Unfortunately during their first tournament at the University of Alberta she broke a bone in her leg and didn’t get to play the entire season. But this video shows some highlights from her first couple games at the UofA tournament. She’s excited to be healed up and ready for Alberta Ball now. (She is #3 on the blue and white team)
