EDMONTON, AB—The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s basketball team is back into the win column.
The WolfPack continued their three game Canada West road swing with a 69-55 victory over the host MacEwan University Griffins 69-55 Friday (Jan 15) night in Edmonton.
Thompson Rivers record is now 7-3 on the year while MacEwan drops to 9-2 as the teams battle for first place in the Explorer Division.
