The WolfPack will again field one of the youngest rosters in the Canada West, if not the entire USPORTS in 2018-19.
Head coach Kelly Shantz continues his rebuilding of the program as he enters his third year at the helm of the Pack.
The team improved upon its Canada West record in 2017-18 by winning three matches and drawing twice to finish in seventh place in the Pacific Division.
For the second straight year, the youthful WolfPack will have no fifth year players. They will have two fourth year captains: Marisa Medonca (Penticton, BC) and Natalie Verdiel (Powell River, BC). Third year veterans expected to provide leadership this season are Cassie Morris (Kamloops, BC), Robin Price (Smithers, BC) and Kelsey Thorkelsson (Winnipeg, MB)
Despite their inexperience, Thompson Rivers have a number of skilled young players. They include midfielder Camryn Curts and goalkeeper Danielle Robertson (both Courtenay, BC). Robertson made a league leading 99 saves last season.
A solid core of sophomores are back with a hard work ethic hoping to move up the standings in Canada West. Among them: Rylee Singleterry (Surrey, BC), Madison Catt (Vernon, BC), Gwen Freeze , Emily Mann and Georgia Aldus (both Kamloops, BC).
Rookies signed out of high school include: Avery Gilbert( 5’5”midfield, Kamloops, BC-Sahali Secondary/Kamloops Youth Soccer), Julia Burkart (5’5” defender, Nelson, BC-LV Rogers Secondary/Nelson Selects), Chantal Gammie (5’6” forward, Smithers, BC-Smithers Secondary/Bulkey Valley Soccer Society), Ainsley Grether (5’6” centre back/midfield, Kamloops, BC-NorKam Secondary/Thompson Okanagan Football Club) and Marissa Young (5’7” keeper, Calgary, AB-James Fowler High School/ Blizzard SC 00).
