Local trio to join SFU soccer squad

Surrey players signed with women's soccer team

Three athletes from Surrey have signed National Letters of Intent to join the Simon Fraser University (SFU) Clan women’s soccer team for next season.

Forward Monpreet Heer and midfielder Samantha Donald from Vancouver Whitecaps Elite REX program are among nine players to commit to Simon Fraser for 2015. Tanis Cuthbert, also a midfielder and a member of Surrey United in the B.C. Soccer Premier League for four years, will also play with the Clan, the lone Canadian team in the NCAA (National Association of Collegiate Athletics).

Three members of the Whitecaps programs chose to attend SFU, all making their decisions independently.

“We all had opportunities to go to schools in the United States but we all wanted to play close to home,” said Donald. “We didn’t realize we had all picked SFU for the same reasons until after we made our decisions.”
