Riverside Rapids Drew Ragiste takes the big leap during the Coquitlam/Delta track and field championships last week at Coquitlam Town Centre. High schools from the region competed with an eye on earning a berth to next month's provincials.
PORT COQUITLAM — While the regular season winds down, the Terry Fox Ravens senior tennis team get prepared to ramp it up.
Standing 8-0 entering the final week of high school league play, Fox will enter the Fraser Valleys with a bye into next week’s semifinals.
Two other District 43 rivals — Heritage Woods and Port Moody — stood tied at 6-2 for second place and will engage in quarterfinal challenges against Seaquam and Delta, respectively.
The Fraser Valley championships are slated for Coquitlam Town Centre courts on May 14.
After that, the Ravens become good hosts — and hopeful contenders — as they pick up the reins and run the provincial AA and AAA tournaments at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Park and Burnaby Lakes complex, May 23 to 25.
PORT COQUITLAM — Although a disappointing exit in the National Lacrosse League playoffs may temper it, PoCo’s Curtis Dickson has reason to be pleased Wednesday after the league announced it’s 2013 All-Pro all-star teams.
Max Hollingworth is hammering his way to a hot start. The Coquitlam Reds outfielder lashed out four hits over two days - not that impressive on the surface - including his league-leading fifth home run, drove in six runs, stole two bases and scored five times in a pair of doubleheaders on Vancouver Island on the weekend.
