KAMLOOPS – The WolfPack qualified for the Canada West playoffs for the third straight season in 2013-14 and they are hoping to continue that streak this year.

Four time CIS Scholar Athlete Jorri Duxbury will again be the main offensive cog along with Taiysa Worsfold.   Kassie Colonna emerged as a force under the basket as she returned to the court after a redshirt year.

The 2013-14 Canada West Rookie of the Year-Sydney Williams will be counted on more heavily and coach Scott Reeves has a number of talented players coming off bench to contribute.  These players include guards Sarah Malate and Jenna Quinton along with forward Shenise Sigsworth.

Fresh faces this year include highly touted guard Michelle Bos of Surrey, BC.
