Wheelchair Basketball athlete Arrin Young, who graduated from Morinville Community High School last summer, has just returned from the Canada Games for Wheelchair Basketball with a bronze medal.

Team Alberta defeated PEI in the Bronze final. Quebec took first place and Saskatchewan placed second in the recent games.

Young joined the national team in 2014 and became one of 12 athletes named to the 2015 Canadian Senior Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball Team in December. She is the only Alberta athlete among the dozen.

Young’s team will compete at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games in the hopes of a top three finish that would let them qualify for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Summer Games.

The Parapan American Games run from Aug. 7 to 15 at the Ryerson Athletic Centre in downtown Toronto.
