Wolves Travel To Arizona
January 12th, 2015
The GPRC Wolves Women's Basketball team spent their winter break competing in the warmth of the Arizona sun,as the Wolves trained and played games in Phoenix, AZ in late December. The team practiced and played exhibition games at NCAA Junior Colleges, Phoenix College, South Mountain Community College and Glendale College. The trip allowed the group to practice together, as well as spend time in Tempe, Arizona, on the campus of Arizona State University. Unfortunately, the Wolves had to leave the sun to return to the frozen Canadian winter but are ready to go for the second semester of the ACAC season.
