The UNBC Timberwolves women’s soccer team dipped into the Prince George talent pool to upgrade its roster.
Today (Friday), they announced the commitment of Alysa Leclerc.
“It’s so crazy to me because I have grown up in this community and I have trained with the Timberwolves for a long time. To officially be a part of the older girls I have looked up to my whole life is very exciting.”
Leclerc joined the Timberwolves Academy when she was in Grade 8 and has trained with UNBC head coach Neil Sedgwick and assistant coach Joanne Wankling since that time.
Sedgwick has been able to track Leclerc’s development throughout her entire secondary school career. The UNBC bench boss believes his newest recruit’s hunger to keep growing as a major asset at the Canada West level.
“I am really excited to officially welcome Alysa to our program. I have known Alysa for a number of years, and we are fortunate to have watched her grow in our Timberwolves Academy. She has truly stretched her limits and is willing to examine her actions to improve. This focus will take Alysa a long way over her collegiate career.”
Leclerc is set to graduate from Shas Ti Kelly Road Secondary in June, the honour roll student will enroll in UNBC’s biomedical studies program. She will join her new teammates for training camp in July.
