The UNBC women’s basketball team has recruited Grade 12 Duchess Park student Rebecca Landry for the 2019-20 Canada West season.

The product of the Junior Timberwolves program was named tournament MVP after leading the Condors to the 2018 zone title.

She also helped Duchess to a fifth-place finish in last season’s provincial championship.

“I am very excited. I have been around the program and these players for a long time, so I think this is going to be a really cool experience. This is a perfect situation. I am happy how it all turned out, because this is something I have wanted for a really long time,” said the five-foot-ten Landry in a team news release.

A shooting guard and a small forward, Rebecca is the younger sister of Timberwolves’ forward Madison Landry.

“Going to the rim is one of my strengths. I like playing defense, and I am pretty vocal, which is usually what coaches are looking for.”

Landry identifies Medical Studies as a likely academic path, once she is a UNBC student in the fall.
