Duo from neighbouring provinces provide Gaiter-aid

Head coach Rod Gilpin has landed numerous out-of-province talents to build up next year’s Bishop’s University Gaiters (Lennoxville, QC) roster and this recruiting year begins no differently, with commitments from Adam Spurrell (Quispamsis, NB/Kennebecasis Valley) & Mitchell Pierman (Perth, ON/Perth).


Named a Southwest AAA Boys’ all-star this year for Kennebecasis Valley, the 6’3” Spurrell has been a mainstay on the New Brunswick Provincial teams during his past four summers. As the only returning member from the 2009 Canada Summer Games team, he led the NB U17 team in scoring (16.0 ppg) at the 2010 Nationals in Winnipeg, while shooting a team-high 56% from the field. Earlier that summer, he was rewarded with an invite to attend the U17 Junior National team tryouts in Toronto.


Adam is an exceptional athlete who jumps well and is very strong,” said Gilpin. “He is a tremendous finisher, but can really pass the ball. He is a very versatile player who we expect to impact our team immediately.”


Pierman has been sidelined with injuries off and on for the past couple of years and is due for a healthy year to show his abilities. He has always been well respected as a dangerous shooter from eastern Ontario.


Mitchell is an excellent shooter with range and that helps address a weakness our team (this past year) had,” said Coach Gilpin. “At 6’5, he will be someone who can play both forward spots and stretch defences.”
