New Westminster Barcelona product Carly Willmott was one of five new recruits to Trinity Western University’s women’s soccer team.
The 5-6 Walnut Grove Secondary grad will help bolster the Spartan’s defensive unit at the centre back position.
With Barcelona, Willmott earned a league title in the Metro Women’s under-21 A division and finished second at the u-21 provincial championships.
“Carly is developing into a solid centre back and we are excited that she is joining the Spartans this coming year,” Roxburgh said in a school press release. “I like her character, her coachability and her willingness to work hard to grow as a player. We like the depth and desire that she will bring to the squad. She is dedicated to the game and showed a desire to be at TWU.”
Willmott plans to study human kinetics while at TWU.
“The Spartans soccer team is an amazing group of girls that I am so thankful to be a part of. I am looking forward to further enhancing my skills as a soccer player in a high level and competitive environment,” Willmott said in the release
