The University of Northern British Columbia Women’s soccer team has added significant speed and goal-scoring, announcing the commitment of Sofia Jones for the upcoming 2018-2019 season.
“The playing environment is awesome. Everyone is so nice, the technique is really strong, and it’s just fun here. They’re really good players, which was awesome to see.”
“She’s a solid attacking player and I think she will add a different dimension to our team next year. She could end up in the midfield because she has a great soccer mind. She also has some great attacking attributes and some great finish around the goal, so we are certainly hoping she brings that to the table.”
“I used to be a defender, but my coach helped me a lot. I use my speed a lot, because I am pretty fast. I like to try to get behind the defense, so I hope to bring that to the team.”
“I’ve lived in the city my entire life, so it is definitely interesting to see a different type of lifestyle. It was a wow moment, arriving on campus. It was really nice to be able to walk around and feel a part of nature.”
“She is a soccer junkie. She absolutely loves the game, and the girls thought she was wonderful. Spending a couple days with her, we really saw her maturity and how much she wants to contribute to the program and to the university. I think this is a great fit.”
“Many of the players are young, and that means we are going to continue to get better in the future. To be able to make that progress so quickly is exciting. I want my shot to get better, I want to play faster, and play with my new teammates.”
