A Salmon Arm guard is playing a significant role in the success of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s basketball team.

The WolfPack has the best record of any of the school’s Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) teams going into the Christmas break. Scott Reeves and company sit in second place in the Canada West Pacific Division with a 7 and 3 record. It’s the best record the school has had since they entered Canada West nine years ago.

Duxbury is among members of the WolfPack who appear among the leaders in Canada West statistics. A third-year year guard, she is emerging as a major threat. She leads the league in minutes played (35.3), assists (6.6 per game) and steals (3.2 per game). She is also fourth in assist/turnover ratio (1.7), seventh in defensive rebounds (5.7) and 19th in rebounds (6.1 per game average).

The WolfPack return to league play Jan. 5 when they entertain the UBCO Heat. Tip off is 5 p.m. at the Tournament Capital Centre.
