Hailey Moore Talks With Recruiter at BC Girls Provincials

It goes without saying that it has been an incredible 2020 season thus far for Nisg̱a’a basketball all around and young Hailey Moore is no exception!

Hailey – the 16 year old daughter of Teniel Angus and Tyler Moore of Lax̱g̱alts’ap is showing incredible promise in her young basketball career.  Hailey is currently attending grade 11 at Caledonia Senior Secondary School in Terrace where she plays for the senior girls basketball team.  The team made the trek to Langley to play in the Double A Girls Basketball Provincials in late February. 

While the team did not come out on top, “she loved the experience” says Hailey’s mom Teniel Angus.  That experience also gave young talent like Hailey exposure to post-secondary recruiters who took in the games. 

“Hailey was contacted by a recruiter from Douglas College regarding basketball” said Teniel.  “Honestly I was so happy I started crying and beaming from pure joy!”

Hailey is also actively working toward a spot on the U19 Girls Team BC basketball team that will represent BC at the North American Indigenous Games in Halifax this summer.  The Phase 3 try outs where the final roster will be determined take place in Kelowna this weekend.

Si’aamhl wilin, Hailey!  The Nisg̱a’a Nation is rootin for you!
