The University of Northern British Columbia’s Women’s soccer program has added a dose of playmaking, officially announcing the commitment of midfielder Jenna Wild for the 2018-2019 Canada West season.
“It means a lot. I didn’t know I would be up here at this time, but I am really excited to have this opportunity. To be able to train with these girls and with Neil.”
“I have heard it’s a really good program, and obviously with Neil up here, that was huge for me. When I was playing youth, it wasn’t about wins, it was about developing as players. I think he carries a lot of that to this team. I have a lot to grow in, so I felt really confident coming here.”
“Jenna brings tremendous maturity and energy to our program. She has a very high soccer intelligence, and it allows her to find key spaces on the field that help us attack defenses. We are thrilled to have her.”
“The technical level is a lot higher, so I have work to do technically. The speed of play and tempo is a lot faster, which I like. It is played a lot on the ground, so I am looking forward to that.”
“I have a good work ethic, and I try to raise the level of work ethic around me. I have good ball control, and I hope to see the field. I am super excited to learn a lot and work really hard.”
