The University of Northern British Columbia’s Women’s basketball team continues to add valuable pieces to the lineup, announcing the commitment of Megan Stewart for the 2017-2018 season.
“I’m really excited to be joining the Timberwolves this season. I have loved basketball for as long as I remember, so it is a dream come true getting to play the game at the university level.”
The native of Maple Ridge cited her visit to campus, where she was able to practice with the Timberwolves, as a major factor in her decision to commit. Stewart will pursue an education in biology and resource management.
“I came up to UNBC during spring break, and really enjoyed it. I was able to practice with the team and everyone was so welcoming,” she said. “The school had an amazing atmosphere. I loved the smaller class sizes, and that it is an environmentally friendly university.”
Standing five-foot, 11-inches, Stewart starred at Samuel Robertson Tech, where she graduated from this June. She has hopes to contribute in her freshman campaign, but is willing to put in the effort to make that happen.”
“In my first year, I really want to work hard and push my game to the limits. I am really looking forward to learning a lot from my coaches and my teammates.”
Timberwolves coach Sergey Shchepotkin said Stewart has the frame and attitude to become a major factor for UNBC in the coming years.
“Megan has all the tools to become a big contributor for us. She has a great combination of size and speed,” he said. “What stands out about Megan is her willingness to work on her skills. She has great desire to improve, and that will help her, and us, for years to come.”
Stewart paced the SRT Titans, leading the team to the Fraser Valley Championships for the first time in program history. The season also included a season-high 34 point performance against Rick Hansen Secondary.
Stewart will join her Timberwolves teammates in August for training camp.
“I am really thankful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to start my journey as a Timberwolf.”
