The GPRC Wolves are pleased to announce that Sophie Leslie who currently plays with the Charles Spencer Mavericks, has committed to the 2018-19 season. Women’s Basketball Head Coach Mandy Botham is excited to welcome Leslie to the pack commenting that she “plays with intense passion, and is a fierce competitor. She has the ability to hit key shots in big moments and will provide a definite spark to our team.”
Hailing from Aberdeen, Scotland, Leslie is no stranger to the Wolves, participating in Sport Camps, and competing in various tournaments over the years. As the top offence recipient in her 2016-17 season, she was selected to play in the 2017 High School All-Star Game.
Leslie who was nominated Tournament MVP in the 2016 Stonebridge Senior High Basketball Classic, is looking forward to attending GPRC as she enjoys the environment the College offers students and athletes. She is most excited about taking her game to the next level, and competing with talented players around the province, some of whom she has admired throughout her high school playing career.
Welcome to the pack Sophie!

The Academy, which includes children ranging from grades 4-12 from different schools; 4-8 Alexander Forbes, 4-8 Ecole Montrose, 9-12 Charles Spencer began to donate to GPRC Room O’ Plenty 3 years ago.
A week before Halloween, students go out with flyers and inform people they will be coming by on Halloween to collect food. This year there was approximately 100 students plus their parents and staff volunteers who went out and collected food.
This year, 2,240 lbs of non-perishable food was donated this year to GPRC Room O’ Plenty from Dare to Scare, The Academy. The biggest year yet!
Thank you to the students of The Academy for their time, support and passion to this cause. It’s greatly appreciated, and we’re so excited for next year.
Program: Business Administration
High School: Charles Spencer High School
Chris is one of the many rookies within the Men’s soccer program this season and is studying Business Administration.
A local graduate from Charles Spencer High School, Chris can fill a number of roles but with his technical ability and range of passing he suits a midfield berth. Chris is a good communicator on the park, always wants the ball and works hard for his teammates when not in possession. He has great awareness and vision with the ball at his feet.
We hope Chris will have a successful time representing Wolves soccer in the next few years.
Program: Open Studies Hometown: Edmonton, A.B.
Originally from Edmonton, Kevin has returned to represent the Wolves for a third time.
Kevin is a gifted player. His composure and close control in tight situations is phenomenal. His first half display against Augustana Vikings last weekend was a joy to watch. His long range passing is quality and helps provide a calmness in the middle of the park. His beaming smile reflects a friendly personality and we hope he continues to represent the Wolves as he continues his studies.
