We are Grizzlies is a new monthy look at NPSS Athletics alumni who have moved on to play university sports. Two North Peace Grizzlies Class of 2019 grads are taking the field this season for the UNBC Timberwolves Women’s Soccer Team: Claire Turner and Kenzie Chilcott.
Claire scored her first career goal for the Timberwolves on September 7th against UBC. She says that in only a month, she has grown not only as a player but as a person. For the girls, every day provides an opportunity to improve on and off the field. Claire has consistently been selected to be on the rostered 18 (out of 28 players).
Kenzie is thriving on the Timberwolves strong sense of team and community. She says that “Head coach Neil Sedgwick shows us that there is so much more to the game than winning, and that it’s important to build each other up. It's really exciting to get the opportunity
to play with experienced players and continuously be growing in the same direction. At the end of the day you have to work hard for what you want."
The Timberwolves currently sit in 5th place in the Canada West Pacific division with a record of 3-2-2, just one point behind UVIC. Their next game is Friday, October 4 at home against UWU. You can follow their season on Instagram @unbcwsoc or online at www.unbc.ca/timberwolves.
