The Wheelchair-Basketball Team of Zone 5 Vancouver-Coastal finished fifth in the Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games after a tight 28 to 21 win versus Zone 8 Cariboo-North East. During the really close and intense game, it was not clear who is taking the lead until the last period.

Coach Jason Costa who is playing Wheelchair-Basketball was very satisfied with the overall performance of his team. ”They did a fantastic job,“ said Costa, ”I’m really impressed about how they improved during the BC Winter Games and I think it was a great experience for all of my players.“ In addition, Costa stated that he is more than contented with the result of finishing fifth. ”When this team came together for the first time with players from all over BC, I couldn’t have imagined such a great outcome.“

The 2016 BC Winter Games are Costa’s first Games as a coach. ”I have already participated in the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games as an athlete and my opinion hasn’t changed since then,“ stated Costa, ”I think it is such a great opportunity to introduce competitive sports to young athletes and help them improving their skills.”

After their final game, the team was celebrating their victory in the last game and their sportsmanship during the whole Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games.
