Red River College Women’s Soccer is pleased to announce the commitment of Morgan Butler for the 2014 MCAC season. Morgan played youth soccer with the Portage Trail Soccer Club premier program. With PTSC she won the U15 MSA Cup and represented Manitoba at the Club Nationals. As a youth player she trained with the Manitoba Provincial team and CSSE Academy. With CSSE Academy she was team captain of a U14 team that won the Peloteros International tournament in Seville Spain. Morgan graduated from Sanford Collegiate in 2012. She helped her school team win one Divisional championship, and she was a starter in all four years of high school and team MVP three years. Following high school Morgan joined the U of W Wesmen and was a starter during her freshman year in their inaugural CIS season in 2012. Morgan currently plays senior women’s soccer with the St James Legends in the first division of the WWSL.
Morgan plays defence and will find herself in the centre of the Rebels back four this year. “We are very fortunate to have a player of Morgan’s quality and experience join our team this year,” says Head Coach Doug Lawrie, “her work ethic and inter-personal skills demonstrated through training camp show she will be a leader on the team. Her experience and skills will provide a level of composure at the back needed by all successful teams.”
After completing one year of university, Morgan decided to change the focus of her post-secondary education and will be entering the Business Adminstration program at RRC.
