Top soccer players headed to UVic

Some of women’s soccer’s top recruits from B.C. and Alberta have committed to the University of Victoria Vikes women’s soccer program for the 2012-13 season.

Striker and midfielder Sarah Douglas, midfielder Allie Wiebe, striker Sarah Lefebvre, and defenders Nikki Turner, Sam Lee and Erika Groten are expecting to suit up for the Vikes this year.

Since 13, Douglas has played competitive soccer in the women’s premier division with Victoria clubs Gordon Head and Gorge.

In 2011, Douglas spent the summer as a regular starter with the Prospect Super 20 Highlanders team following her Grade 11 season with 2011 Provincial A Cup winners Glenlyon Norfolk School.

Turner and Lee, both Claremont secondary graduates, and Lefebvre were teammates on the Victoria Capitals Metro team that captured the league title in 2010-11.
