The Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves have added forward, Amanda Van Dolah to their roster for the 2011 / 2012 ACAC season.  From Vanderhoof, B.C., Van Dolah joins the Wolves after a successful high school basketball career, as part of the Nechako Valley Secondary School.  Van Dolah was named the Co-Most Valuable Player on her team during the past season that she played with the Viqueens and will now take her game to the next level of competition, as she joins the GPRC Women’s College Basketball program.

An athletic five feet 10 inches forward, Amanda Van Dolah had a great high school season for the successful Nechako Valley High School program, as she was named a Zone First Team All-Star this season.  Van Dolah is a relentless rebounder and fearless defender whose work ethic and attitude makes her a coveted recruit for GPRC.

Former GPRC Wolves Head Coach and current Nechako Valley High Coach, Joel Mueller said the following about Amanda:

“I have had the pleasure to coach Amanda for the last two years and got to see her grow as a player and as a person.

She went from a player that was a not always aggressive as she needed to be to, to a stand-out player, who put her stamp on every game and has nowhere near reached her potential yet. The challenge of playing at a higher level will bring the best out of Amanda.”

“Amanda is loaded with potential and has the needed tools to succeed at the College level,” said Wolves Head Coach, Dave Waknuk.  “We are very excited to work with her, as part of our program.”

The Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves are coming off their best year in the program’s history, as they won the ACAC Women’s Basketball Championship in 2010/2011 and will begin their defence of the provincial crown when the season start in October 2011.
