Panther Women’s Basketball recruits Annabelle Charron

Charlottetown, PEI (March 20, 2017)—University of Prince Edward Island Women's Basketball head coach Greg Gould is pleased to announce Annabelle Charron has committed to the Panthers for the 2017-18 season.

Charron is a 5'9" guard from Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. She has been a two-year starter for her Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu Geants CEGEP team. 

"I am excited to join a Panthers team who are young and on the move in the AUS," said Charron. "UPEI is a good fit for me to pursue my academic and basketball goals. I feel I will be able to realize my full potential with the Panthers. I am looking forward to the challenge of playing at the next level, working hard to improve, and making a contribution to our team's success. UPEI has an excellent nutrition program and I am excited to work towards my goal of becoming a nutritionist. I hope to build many memorable experiences during my career at UPEI."

Coach Gould first noticed Charron last spring when her Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu team won their league championship. "I believe Annabelle is a great fit for our program," said Gould. "She comes from a winning program, is a great student, a hard worker, and great team player. Annabelle will bring speed and tenacious defense to our team. I look forward to working with her and helping her to achieve her academic and basketball goals."

Charron has been accepted into the UPEI Faculty of Science.
