Two members of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack basketball program have been recognized for outstanding first seasons.
Guards Jordon Haggerty (Saskatoon, SK) and Tyus De Vries (Chilliwack, BC) have been named to their respective Canada West ‘all rookie” teams.

Haggarty is a graduate of Centennial Collegiate. The 5’5’ first year Science student started in 18 of the team’s 20 games this year, averaging 23.5 minutes, 7.6 points, 1.1 steals, 2.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game.

Head coach Scott Reeves said, “Jo was a terrific signing for our program. We knew she would have an immediate impact on our program. Her skill set is solid and she has a great basketball IQ. We are able to build our future program around a complete point guard like Jo. “

De Vries is into his first year of Business. The Sardis Secondary grad came off the bench and averaged 6.5 points per game in 23.5 minutes of court time. He averaged 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.

“ He is a guy who came in trying to compete for minutes,” said Coach Scott Clark. “ His mental and physical approach were good. He had a very good freshman year. There was the odd up and down and that is going to happen with a young guy. There is a lot of good basketball in his future. He is a great guy. A great student and teammate. We are happy to have him here and be able to coach him this year and the future will be a pleasure.”

Clark adds that De Vries bought into the culture of dedication on the WolfPack. “All the guys including Tyus are dedicated on being the best athlete they can be for themselves and their teammates. You are trying to teach and praise the values of basketball that they can their life once their career is over. Dedication, hard work, perseverance, a sense of responsibility to the group knowing that you are a major piece of the group. I think Tyus understands that and really embodies what our team culture is about.”
