Westside Warriors general manager and head coach Darren Yopyk is pleased to announce 20-year-old captain Alex Grieve has accepted a scholarship to attend Bentley College for the 2011-12 season.
In 45 games played this year, Grieve has 22 goals and 58 total points. He’s 11th in league scoring and leads the Warriors team in three-stars voting. He is the second Warriors captain in a row to help raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society through the Warriors Battle to Beat Cancer fundraiser
“Alex has worked extremely hard to obtain one of his goals of achieving a scholarship. All the while, he has continued to put the team ahead of any of his individual aspirations. Bentley has recruited a very good young man who will be a tremendous asset to their institution on the ice, in the classroom, and in their community. Coach Soderquist and his staff have done an excellent job at Bentley, and Alex will help them to continue their rise in the Atlantic Hockey Conference.
“As an organization, we are very proud of all of our players. Our mandate is to help the young student-athletes develop into not only great hockey players, but more importantly great citizens. We believe that as an organization, we continue to do just that.”
Grieve will join fellow teammate Matt Maher at Bentley this fall. He becomes the 12th Warrior committed to an NCAA Division I scholarship on this year’s team. The Warriors congratulate Alex and his family for achieving this goal.
