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.
