They may be in the middle of the Canada West women’s soccer season, but the UNBC Timberwolves are thinking ahead to the future and have locked up the services of a talented high school recruit.
On Tuesday, the Timberwolves announced the commitment of defender Keeley Read for the 2024 U SPORTS season and beyond.
The five-foot-eight native of Langley visited the Prince George campus this summer, where she had a chance to tour the facilities and train alongside the T-wolves varsity roster as part of the ID camp.
Read will graduate from Brookswood Secondary School next June, where she was the 2023 Athlete of the Year. She will enroll in UNBC’s psychology program and join her new teammates for training camp in the summer of 2024.
The T-wolves (0-5-1, seventh in Pacific) take on the Alberta Pandas (2-3-3, fourth in Prairie) this Friday (6 p.m.) at Masich Place Stadium. Sunday 2:15 p.m. UNBC will host the MacEwan Griffins (6-0-1, first in Prairie).
The UNBC men (1-5-1, fifth in Pacific) are also at home this weekend. They host Alberta (4-0-1, first in Prairie) Friday at noon, then take on the Lethbridge Pronghorns (2-2-3, fourth in Prairie) Sunday at noon.
