The UNBC Northern Timberwolves women's basketball team is heading to the national Canadian Colleges Athletic Association championship in Truro, Nova Scotia. UNBC's first game will be at 11am (BC time) on Friday, March 14th, against The Sainte-Foy Dynamiques of Quebec. It will mark the first time that a UNBC basketball team has made it to a national championship.
On March 1st, the T-wolves scored a BC Championship in the team's first year in the new Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre. The facility was packed for the final game, with nearly 2000 fans cheering on the UNBC team to victory.
The Timberwolves Athletic Association - the community booster club supporting UNBC Athletics - hosted a rally for the Timberwolves on Monday, March 10, at Shooters Restaurant on Ospika Boulevard. The event served as a celebration for the BC victory and a send-off for the team in advance of their departure to the Nationals.
