A tale of two packs for GPRC Wolves
April 6th, 2010
Two camps, similar in structure, but their targets could not be more diametrically opposed.
Over the weekend, the Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves spring ID camps were held for both men's and women's basketball clubs, attracting about 100 hoopsters, all looking for a shot at cracking the 2010-11 Wolves hardcourt lineups.
On the men's side, coach Chris Nicol confirms the team is in full rebuilding mode.
As few as two players from this year's squad could return, meaning there are as many as 14 spots available on a club that admittedly struggled this ACAC season.
"Yeah, that's the direction we are going," said Nicol.
"We're looking to identify some key talent moving into next season."
On the ladies' side, the opposite holds true. Four of five starters are returning, and as many as eight returnees are anticipated.
With a strong performance in the ACAC this season, coach Dave Waknuk is confident the team will continue to build towards success in the coming campaign.
"We have a very strong returning group... we're just looking to plug a few key holes," he said.
Waknuk's squad received two key commitments over the weekend from highly-touted prospects Jessie Antonietti from Peace River and Katlyn Roberts from Prince George. Both are guards and will fit in well with the team's scheme, Waknuk says.
