Vortex Gearing Up for a Fresh Set of Downs

The Vegreville Vortex want you to 'Suit Up'!

The Vegreville Vortex Football Team will hit the field next week to begin preparations heading into a new Wheatland Football League Season and are looking to recruit new players for the year.

William Quinton, a soon-to-be Grade 12 Student at St. Mary’s Catholic High School in Vegreville and Running Back for the Vortex, says he loves the sport because anybody can play.

Quinton says there’s a position for everybody on the team.

Those interested in joining the Vortex this season are encouraged to head to the team’s practices next week, which will be held at St. Mary’s Football Field twice daily from August 21st to 25th at both 1pm and 4:30pm

Boys and Girls heading into Grade 9 through 12 at either St. Mary’s or V.C.H.S. are welcome to play for the team.

Vegreville heads to a Jamboree in Sherwood Park next weekend which will see them play a series of ‘mini-games’ ahead of the W.F.L.’s Regular Season start in September.
