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 Sydney Kelly and Pieter Boone from Wolves Soccer as our current Athletes of the Week!
Sydney, who is enrolled in Open Studies at GPRC, is in her rookie season and scored two goals in her home opener against the King’s University Eagles over the weekend, earning her Player of the Game recognition on Saturday.
A powerful player who is willing to work hard for her teammates when possession is lost, she can score with either foot, has good control and great stamina, she leads the offense brilliantly and possesses a wonderful attitude to the game.
Head Coach Chris Morgan says that “Sydney always sets a good example and is well respected by everyone.” He adds “She is a pleasure to coach and we look forward to more goals from her in a Wolves uniform.”
“It is a pleasure to have Pieter return for his 2nd year to represent the Wolves”, says Head Coach Morgan, “as well as being a real threat in the air, he is a strong and physical defender with a tremendous range of passing and a booming right foot.”
Pieter is enrolled in Open Studies at GPRC and was outstanding in the two games versus the King’s University Eagles over the weekend, with commanding performances on
defense, which earned him the Player of the Game nomination on Friday.
A real personality both on and off the field, Pieter is well liked by his peers and plays an important role within the squad.
Congratulations Sydney and Pieter!
The squads travel South this upcoming weekend, facing the University of Alberta – Augustana Vikings on Saturday, and NAIT Ooks on Sunday. Kick off is at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm on Saturday, and 12:00pm and 2:00 pm on Sunday, with the Women’s game taking place first on both days.
