Talia’s high school Coach Dan Forte; “I am very proud of Talia and super excited about her commitment to the Thunderwolves. I have no doubt that she will fit right in. Talia is a highly skilled player who can knock down threes from range, drive and kick, and play tenacious pressure defense. Over her 4 years of playing varsity at GVC, she started every game and helped transform our program into a top 10 team in Manitoba. It was an honour to coach Talia, and I can’t wait to hear about her success on and off the court.”
“We have added two terrific student-athletes who have proven themselves both on and off the court. One thing Niki and Talia both have in common is a tremendous work ethic. Niki is multi-talented. Her strength is rebounding and shooting from the perimeter but she can also post up strong and finish inside. Talia is an unbelievable shooter with very good range. She has the ability to knock down deep threes with volume and is a great scorer overall. She has very good court vision and headman’s the ball very well.” – Coach Jon Kreiner
