Prior to the medal presentations two of the Princeton Rebels were presented with special awards. Angela Marshall and Ciara Bamford were presented with 1st and 2nd team all stars awards. When introducing Marshall to the 1st All Star team, the presenter said, “There are no words to describe how well she plays…”
Marshall also received an invitation to play in the BC High School All Star Game at the Langley Events Centre in April.
