The B.C. Games Society brought in instructors and 16 chairs to teach students the basics of the game. Members of the Lakers senior girls basketball team took to the court against Paul Mend and other Pen High teachers on Nov. 13. Wheelchair basketball is among 17 sports being played during the Winter Games hosted in Penticton on Feb. 25-28, 2016. The BC Games committee is seeking volunteers.
