| Basketball (W), News

Kielly McDonough, a local basketball product out of Hammarskjold High, has committed to Lakehead University Basketball and Coach Jon Kreiner.

McDonough has been on the Thunderwolves scene for some time now, having come through the Junior Wolves program and is now ready to take the next step.

Says Kreiner, “Kielly has worked hard and has come on late as a basketball player but she has all the tools. Kielly’s strong, fit, smart and does many things well. She’s a great team player who will work very hard at her skills development. We are very happy and excited to have Kielly join the Thunderwolves Women’s Basketball family.”

Kielly McDonough WolvesMcDonough’s high school coach Bruno Corbin is certain that Kielly will continue to succeed as a Thunderolf. “Kielly McDonough is the type of athlete that every coach wants on their team,” says Corbin. “Every time she steps on the floor she brings her high energy and determined work ethic. This approach made Kielly an invaluable member of the Hammarskjold Vikings for the past two seasons and a key contributor to two consecutive City Championships. She welcomes the challenge of guarding the opposing team’s best player and more often than not shuts them down with her tenacious defense. Kielly’s commitment to basketball has paid off and she will be a great addition to the Thunderwolves family.”

McDonough is excited to begin her journey at Lakehead, saying, “Since I started the Junior Wolves program in grade 10 I’ve always enjoyed the coaches and everyone on the Thunderwolves team. I can’t wait to officially become a Thunderwolf and continue playing competitive basketball in my hometown.”
