Beauchamp to play at Trinity

Tessa Beauchamp of Surrey has committed to play for the Trinity Western University (TWU) women’s basketball team next season.

As a member of the Holly Cross Crusaders, Beauchamp helped the Senior AA high school team placed third at the B.C. Championships, earning a first-team all-star selection.

She averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds per game this past season, as was the Most Valuable Player at both the Fraser Valley and Surrey Firefighters Goodwill tournaments.

The five-foot-10 forward also earned Sport B.C.’s Harry Jerome Comeback Award in 2010, in recognition of her return to basketball after she was diagnosed with cancer. Treatment for a brain tumour included radiation and two surgeries.

“Tessa is one of the toughest kids I’ve ever met and it’s an honour for us to have her among our athletes,” said TWU coach Cheryl Jean-Paul.

“She continues to battle cancer and her resolve to join our team is humbling. We are excited to have a person of such character and maturity among us.”
