2016/2017 Varsity Season Photo Gallery


We had a blast this year welcoming so many supporters to our Varsity away games.  We were blown away, community by community, at the number of alumni, friends, and family members who came out to cheer on our beloved Thunderwolves.


Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!


We wanted everyone to know how much the coaches and players appreciated your support.  Having fans in the stands can be a tremendous advantage for a visiting team.  In fact, at our November Thunderwolves hockey game in Waterloo, there were more Lakehead fans than hometown ones!  When we scored our first goal, the athletes on both teams were shocked by the cheers from the stands.  The coaches and players also enjoyed the opportunity to interact with many of you before, during and after the games.

We were excited to visit Toronto, Guelph, Hamilton, Kingston, Sudbury, North Bay, Waterloo and Ottawa.

There were conversations with many people throughout the varsity season that were illuminating to us.  They asked us questions about our athletes and what kind of support our teams need.  They recognized that away games for our Thunderwolves are not as simple as taking a bus to the town next door.

They asked us to get back to them with how alumni could help.  We listened. 

Should you decide to help our dedicated student athletes, here’s how you can make a one-time gift on our secure online giving page here or you can learn more about becoming a monthly donor online here. 

With either option, you can designate your gift to a specific team, or to our Athletics Program in general.  Simply type your preference into the box upon selecting "Other"

We’re going to be back with an even more ambitious schedule of engagement in collaboration with our varsity teams.  Keep an eye on your Inbox starting in September.  See you next season. 


Go Wolves Go!
