McLean Youth Soccer Coach and AGD, Nicci Wright, has been selected for the University of Victoria (UVIC) Sports Hall of Fame – class of 2013.
She is the first female soccer player at the school to be awarded such an honor. After being the Vikes’ GK from 1992-1996, Wright earned 36 caps for Canada and played pro with the Vancouver Whitecaps and Washington Freedom. Wright shares: “I was very surprised when I received a call from the AD and I am obviously very honored to be selected this year. I have fond memories of my days at UVIC and playing there set up the opportunity for me to play for my national team and obviously to continue on playing internationally. I am still close to my former teammates and get back to watch our athletic teams play as much possible. Go Vikes :)” MYS shares in her enthusiasm and congratulates her on this honor!
