The University of Northern British Columbia’s Women’s soccer team continues to bolster its lineup for the 2019-2020 season, officially announcing the commitment of Kenzie Chilcott to the Timberwolves.
“Seeing how this team works as a community, and Neil not pushing the culture on anyone. It just happens naturally around him. I am really a community based person, and I love having a culture where everyone is equal.”
“Soccer has always come naturally. I have done it the longest, and the idea of letting it go didn’t feel good. I know it is close to my heart. This is a big relief, and a big step, and now I am just excited for this to happen.”
“One of the things Neil talks about is being comfortable being uncomfortable. We have played like the Timberwolves, and I want to continue that. I love how Neil inspires us to grow and get better. That fits me really well.”
“Kenzie is a truly exciting prospect for this program. She has seemingly limitless energy and grit to her game. Her playing environment in Fort St. John has more than prepared her to take the next step.”
“I love seeing the little things happen. When I saw Mara (McCleary) scored their first playoff goal, I just lit up. I felt like I was beside her cheering her on. That just pumps me up for next year.”
“When recruiting, we look for two key qualities. A love of continued growth in the game, and the work capacity to support that desire. Kenzie checks both those boxes in a major way. When you look in her eyes during training, it’s easy to how much she cares. She is constantly searching for deeper understanding, and then she takes action.”
“I like to get into tackles. I am fast, so I have been the one to chase opposition down. I really have been trying to take more risks playing forward, because I play so defensively. That will be something to see, along with, hopefully, some goals.”
