“I am very happy and excited that Megan has decided to join the Thunderwolves Family. Megan is a very experienced and knowledgeable forward that will instantly provide us with toughness, interior defense, rebounding and she has the ability to hit the outside shot. Megan is a very intelligent student-athlete who loves the game and will fit in very nicely with our team.” – Coach Jon Kreiner

Megan Explains:

“I chose Lakehead because it presented me the opportunity to further my education, and continue to improve my athletic abilities. The coaching staff at Lakehead has impeccable knowledge of the game which is backed by their stellar record, and the talented women they have recruited. Along with Coach Kreiner’s knowledge of the game, I was very impressed with how long he has been with this program. Having that kind of stability and dedication is exactly what I need in a coach. I cannot begin to express how blessed I am to have this opportunity. I am beyond excited to have a fresh start at LU, and begin playing with my amazing teammates.”

Megan would also like to acknowledge her family as a major factor in her decision. Her mom Marie, brothers Cameron and Bryson as well as her grandparents Ben and Geraldine Looney all played a key roll in her decision to commit to Lakehead University.
