COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER CLUB CLASS OF 2020 SEES 15 FEMALE PLAYERS MOVING UP TO POST-SECONDARY COMPETITION
Coquitlam Metro-Ford’s reputation as a youth talent builder continues to earn the designation as the club sees 15 of its U18 girls BCSPL team members preparing for the next level with post-secondary institutions across Canada.
Annual U-Sports national title contender, the Trinity Western University Spartans, had this year’s biggest reach into the club talent pool as they will be receiving five graduating players in Sarah Bazille, Madeline Birtch, Jane McKinnon, Michaela Salvino, and Jessa Vance. Challenging the Spartans in Canada West play will be defender Lucia Zecca with the University of Fraser Valley Cascades and forward Isabel Lambert competing across the Georgia Straight for the University of Victoria Vikes.
Heading up Burnaby Mountain to take on US varsity competitors in NCAA play for Simon Fraser University will be defenders Emily Smith and attacker Raegan Mackenzie.
Three club talents will travel outside of the province for varsity competition. Attacking player Raya Athwal will cross the country into central Canada to compete for the Queens University Gaels. Midfielder Kirsten Koellmel lands in the prairies with the University of Regina Cougars along with Goalkeeper Kennedy Jette moving to their conference rival, the Mount Royal University Cougars, in Alberta.
Defender Maya Smith and goalkeeper Linda Aardmaa join a strong group of club alumni as part of the Capilano University Blues program. Nicolette Sicoli will connect in with the Douglas College Royals.
The Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club also recognizes the important contributions toward this success from team coaches Chris and Brian Peat as well as their previous coaches Melissa Mobilio and Elliott Smith. We are proud of all our graduating players and their families for their time and efforts representing our club in provincial, national, and international competition.
