Red River College Women’s Soccer is pleased to announce the commitment of Jessica Lister for the 2014 MCAC season. Jessica played all of her youth soccer with the Tri-S Soccer Club based out of Selkirk, MB. As a youth player Jessica helped her teams qualify for 7 WYSA A-Side Challenge Cup finals, winning four Championships. Her team represented the Interlake in the 2006 MTS Manitoba Summer Games, and in 2011 won the WYSA Golden Boy International Indoor Tournament. Jessica graduated high school from Lord Selkirk Regional Comprehensive Secondary School in 2010, where she was an honour roll student all through high school and starred on the varsity soccer team. She was selected Athlete of the year in grade nine. After youth soccer, Jessica moved into senior women’s soccer with her hometown Tri-S women’s team where she has been playing for three years.
Jessica plays centre midfield. “Jessica comes from an association in Tri-S that is known for its player development and that consistently fields top teams in WYSA,” says Head Coach Doug Lawrie, “I have seen Jessica play on two occasions. She is very comfortable on the ball, distributes it well, and is very capable of putting the ball in the net herself.”
Jessica graduated from the University of Winnipeg in 2014 with her Bachelor of Physical and Health Education and was placed on the Dean’s Honour List. Jessica will be entering the joint UofW/RRC Business/Technology Teacher Education – After Degree program.
