Aaliyah is the 5th athlete from Grande Prairie to join the Wolves for the 2018-19 season. A powerful centre from the Charles Spencer Mavericks, Aaliyah will bring much-needed rim protection, and an inside presence for us, according to head coach Mandy Botham, who is also extremely proud to have a strong local and regional presence on the squad. Coach Botham strongly believes in giving local athletes an opportunity to play at the post-secondary level and says that the numerous high school and club games she has watched have definitely paid off. Aaliyah, who is pursuing studies in criminal psychology, chose GPRC because it is close to home making the transition to a higher level of basketball easier. She is excited about the season’s first game and looks forward to learning all she can from coaches, teammates and other teams.
Welcome to the pack, Aaliyah!
