Head Coach Jon Kreiner on Skyler;
“Skyler Kreger is a very strong student-athlete with great athleticism, is very gifted physically and has a desire to learn and improve. She played post most of her career and we will be looking to develop her at the power forward position and she is excited to get started! Skyler is relentless on the boards and runs the floor very well. She is a solid defender and finisher around the hoop. We will be looking to develop Skylers shot and ball-handling as she transitions into the perimeter for us but she is a hard-working athlete who is very versatile and open to learn! Congratulations Skyler and welcome to the Thunderwolves Family!”
Skyler’s thoughts on her decision to join the Thunderwolves;
“Being able to play university basketball has always been a dream of mine that I am so thankful to have the opportunity of pursuing.
Thunder Bay is my hometown, so being able to come back home and play the sport I love while receiving highly ranked education from Lakehead University is something that I am very grateful and fortunate to be doing. I believe that this team and the quality coaching I will be receiving will push me to be the best student and athlete I can be. I am excited to see where this takes me and how it will contribute to my overall success in the future.
I am very thankful for the numerous coaches and players who have continued to push and make me a better player/person throughout the years. I would not be in the position I am today if it weren’t for them.”
Highschool coach Karly Johnson on Skyler: “Skyler has been a crucial part of our Senior Girls basketball team’s success. She has all of the physical attributes that contribute to her overall athletic success, but it’s everything else about her that makes her an asset to any team.
Skyler is a kind, hard-working, intelligent and selfless athlete. She is a versatile player and a critical thinker who is able to play at any level. She is competitive but calm, and always hardest on herself; Constantly wanting to be the best and do the best she can at all times. She sets goals and always follows through. This is a great opportunity for her and I feel confident in saying she will achieve greatness.”
