The University of Northern British Columbia Women’s soccer team has kept it all in the family, officially announcing the commitment of Avery Nystedt, sister of current Timberwolf Hallie Nystedt, for the 2019-2020 Canada West season.
“I always knew I wanted to play university, and this was a really amazing opportunity for me to continue and grow as a player. I love the environment and the program. And it had the academic program I wanted to go in to, so it all fit together and worked out really well.”
“I have been following the team’s progress because my sister is on the team, and every year they seem to really be improving. Seeing the success on the field, but also the training program. When I came up here, everyone was really intense during practice. Everyone was improving every day. We all push each other, and it was a good team environment.”
“I was really excited to play with her. I love my sister, obviously. We fight sometimes, but at the end of the day we are best friends, so I am excited to come up here. I really enjoy this program, and the way Neil coaches. When I came up here, it felt right.”
“I have known and worked with Avery for a long time, and I have been able to see her develop her abilities. Her tenacity and focus to improve will take her a long way in Canada West. She has immense potential, and I am excited to have her join our program. She has a really promising future here.”
“I want to push myself to grow and learn as much as I can, and absorb as much knowledge as I can from everyone. When I come here, everyone is helping me with little techniques. I just want to learn as much as I can from Neil and from the team. I want to push myself and help the team grow, as the program improves.”
