(March 25, 2014.) Memorial’s women’s soccer team has received commitments from a trio of 2013 Canada Games team members. Emily Bailey, Teri Murphy and Melissa Reid have all committed to the Seahawks for this fall adding to a very talented group of players.
By signing all three Mavin has added depth to the foundation of a very competitive program that finished 5-4-4 last season. Mavin views the signings as “A big win for us. I expect all three players to make an immediate impact on our team in September.”
In choosing Memorial the trio will be reunited with many of their 2013 Canada Games teammates who have been training together since the age of 14. The trio brings a winning attitude forged by hard work and hustle, traits instilled in them through their time with Canada Games Head Coach Jake Stanford.
Melissa Reid, who will graduate from Gonzaga High School in St. John’s, will pursue a degree in psychology while patrolling the defense as the team’s new centre back. The addition of Reid is important as the Seahawks expect to replace team captain Maria Oliver who will graduate from Memorial this spring.
Fans will get their first chance to see the new look Seahawks at their home opener at King George the Fifth in early September.
