Another Grizzlie Off To University


The Victoria Grizzlies are once again excited to announce yet another Division 1 NCAA Commitment. Whistler product Tyler Welsh has accepted a scholarship to play for the prestigious Ivy League team The Yale Bulldogs of Yale University for next four seasons, beginning 2017-2018.

Welsh, an Assistant Captain with the Grizzlies, is enjoying a very successful 2nd season with the club. Last season as a rookie he posted 40 points and this year he is off to a hot start with 16 points in the first 14 games.

“A fourth player receiving a scholarship already so early in the season is another feather in the cap for the Grizzlies organization. We are very happy for Tyler as he has worked very hard every day since he got here last season. Although he not the biggest center man in the league he makes up for it with a huge heart with the kind of work ethic and determination that not only has made him a better player, but those around him as well,” added GM and Head Coach Craig Didmon

Grizzlies face off at home this upcoming Friday and Saturday night as they face Langley on Friday and then meet divisional rival Alberni Valley on the Saturday.
