Congratulations to Kelowna United U18 Girls player Michaela Jacobsen, who has signed to play for the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns next year!
Michaela recently participated in the KU/UBCO Jr Heat U17/18 Girls “Showcase Project.” As part of this team, girls in Grade 11 and 12 trained from mid-August through November, finishing up the project with the Astroturf Collegiate Showcase tournament in Seattle Washington. In the lead up to the tournament, many of the players were contacting college and university coaches as part of their preparations for this showcase tournament, which helps connect university and college soccer programs with potential future players. After talking with the University of Lethbridge coaches at the tournament and committing to the Pronghorn Women’s Soccer Program, Michaela is excited about the opportunity in front of her. “I’ve been playing soccer for as long as I can remember; it’s always been a big part of my life. Being able to continue playing in university is amazing, and makes all those times I’ve had to say, “I can’t – I have soccer,” seem worth it now! I am thankful for all of the coaches I’ve had over the years, for everything the game of soccer has given me and I would also like to thank the University of Lethbridge for giving me this chance!” Currently a Grade 12 student at Mt. Boucherie Senior Secondary School, Michaela will pursue a BSc in Kinesiology as she starts her varsity soccer career in Lethbridge for the 2018/19 season. The U of L Pronghorns Women’s Soccer team competes in the Canada West conference of U-Sport, which is the highest level of University Sport in the country.
