The University of Northern British Columbia’s Women’s soccer team has become bigger and more athletic, officially announcing the commitment of Lydia Lavigne for the 2018-2019 season.
“I have worked really hard to get here. It’s a big commitment and I am so excited to be a part of this team. The girls are super nice and they welcomed me right away. I love Neil as a coach and it was a no-brainer for me.”
“I am hoping to be very strong in my tackles, and distribute the ball well. I want to play forward. Going against bigger girls, I know most of them do weightlifting, so I will have to start upping my game in that, and just start playing faster.”
“She is going to be massive for our program moving forward. She is a fantastic player, and comes from a strong program where she is getting good information. Lydia wants to grow every single day, and that’s what we want. Within our program, that is our focus.”
“I was very proud when they got into playoffs. Looking at their results against those top universities, compared to years before, it was a big jump. I am excited to be a part of this program that is growing and achieving new things.”
“I want to try to make myself a better player, just like most of the girls here have been doing. I just want to play my best and keep bettering myself.”
