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 Erin Grier and Miguel Macedo from Wolves Cross Country Running as our current Athletes of the Week!
1st Year Personal Trainer
Duchess Park Senior Secondary
Grande Prairie, AB
Erin Grier returns to school this season and embarks on a new challenge: XC Running. This Mother-of-Four/Ultra Marathoning/Wolves Athlete, Erin has competed in a number of half marathon, marathon, and ultra marathon races in the past few years, but the 6 km ACAC XC distance is uncharted territory for her. Grier looks forward to learning the ins and outs of “short distance” racing with the help of her younger Wolves teammates.
1st year B Comm Transfer
Spirit River Regional Academy
Miguel Macedo enters his rookie year as one of the top runners on the Wolves men’s team. In his Grade 12 year, Miguel placed 3rd in the ASAA NW Zone XC Running Championships and 8th in the 1500m at the ASAA High School Provincials. Miguel credits his teammate and fellow SRRA graduate Eric Nooy for pushing him in races and practice and making him a better runner and better person.
Congratulations Erin and Miguel!
