A Chatham-Kent basketball player has made it to the final round of cuts for Ontario’s Under-17 team.

Marley Blommers, 16, is one of just 22 of the top players to be invited to the final camp this week in Toronto. Training camp opens today at Humber College with only 15 players selected at the end of the five-day tryout.

Team Ontario is preparing for the 2014 Canadian National Championships in Edmonton, Alberta in July.

Blommers is finishing up Grade 10 at Chatham-Kent Secondary School (CKSS). He’s getting interest from Ivy League schools in the U.S. with still another two years of schooling before he can play college basketball.
