Each week, two GPRC Wolves athletes are selected for their achievements over the weekend on the field, track, or court. We are pleased to congratulate Katy Verduzco from the Wolves Women’s Basketball team and Douglas Kelly from the Wolves Men’s Volleyball team as our current Featured Athletes of the Week!

GPRC Wolves midfielder, Scott Fraser is in his fifth and final year at the College. He has played a key role in the program and mentoring our younger players. Scott has a wand of a left foot and possesses a wonderful first touch complete with a booming shot. He is one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the squad and his love for the game brings the team’s momentum up a notch.
Scott is a popular member of the squad. He is a mature student-athlete and advises the younger athletes of the Wolves way. Thank you to Scott for his dedication to the Wolves.

The pride of Bezanson, Alberta, Anna looks to score points in Indoor Track for the Wolves in the 600m, the 1000m, and the 4 x 400m relay this semester.
