CHARLOTTETOWN – The UPEI Panthers’ women’s soccer team has added a familiar face.
Panthers head coach Graeme McDonald has announced that Maddie Hurley has committed to the Panthers. Hurley competed on five provincial teams, and was named the 2016 P.E.I. Soccer Association junior female player of the year.
“I’m very excited that Maddie is joining our program,” said MacDonald. “She is a strong, quick, intelligent striker with an eye for the goal. Her all-round game is excellent.
“It’s great news to have signed one of P.E.I.’s most talented players, and we look forward to seeing her wear the Panther jersey.”
Hurley began playing soccer at four-years old. She represented P.E.I. at the 2017 Canada Summer Games. She competed three times at the national club championships as a member of the Winsloe/Charlottetown Royals FC.
As a member of the Charlottetown Rural High School Raiders, Hurley won three senior AAA girls’ soccer titles, and was named an all-star twice.
“I am delighted to be going to UPEI, and I am looking forward to competing at the university level and playing with such a talented group of girls in the upcoming soccer season,” said Hurley.
Hurley has been accepted in the faculty of business.
