2013 Male Athlete of the Year Award Recipient
For a grade 12 basketball player, getting to win the provincial title would be a dream come true and for Alex Hart, that dream came true in 2013 for his team at Immacula. But rather than waking up when the final buzzer rang, the dream just kept on getting better as he was selected tournament MVP. Yet still, the dream kept growing and he was named Basketball BC’s Athlete of the Year.
The Province newspaper took notice of Alex’s talents and selected him as Head of the Class. And south of the border, Alex has caught the eye of the University of California, which offered him a full ride scholarship to Division NCAA in Santa Barbara for where he was on a red shirt status this year, preparing to play in the 2014-15 season.
Sharing the dream with other athletes has always been part of Alex’s life on the basketball court. He volunteered as head coach for the grade 8 boys basketball team while at Immaculata and will be training up and coming athletes this summer in Kelowna for girls basketball.
