GPRC Wolves Festival of Gold Athlete of the Year, Alex Verhun.
GPRC Wolves Athletics is proud to congratulate Alex Verhun on receiving the 2018-19 Female Athlete of the Year Award tonight at the annual GPRC Wolves Festival of Gold celebration. Held in the iconic Douglas J. Cardinal Performing Arts Centre, this formal event honours the athletic and academic achievements of GPRC Wolves student-athletes.
A ACAC All-Conference winner, Alex played the important role of team captain and leader for the GPRC Wolves Women’s Soccer team this season. She helped all of the first years on and off the field, led by example on the field with her strong running and leadership; and possesses an extraordinary work ethic.
Enrolled in the Bachelor of Commerce program at GPRC, Verhun is also a CCAA Academic All Canadian, an academic honour given to student-athletes for maintaining a competitive GPA while in competition. This accolade demonstrates perfectly the dedication and commitment Verhun has to her academic and soccer career and is a great ambassador of the program and institution as a whole.
