  • Print

The University of Manitoba Bison women’s soccer team has added to their roster Thursday.

Defender Kayla Gagliardi, midfielder Jessica Lukasiewicz and defender Meagan Sparrow have all committed to the Bison’s soccer club for the upcoming 2012 season.

Gagliardi, 17, and Lukasiewicz, 18, and Sparrow, 18, were all members of the Bonivital Flames, contributing to an MSA Cup Championship in 2008 and 2010. The trio also played for the Manitoba Provincial team.

"Kayla has shown herself to be a versatile player with the ability to play in different positions," said Bisons head coach Hadyn Sloane-Seale in a news release. "Her flexibility and range will advance the team to be able to play different formations during the season.

"Jess is an extremely intelligent player who reads the game very well. We are looking forward to seeing the contribution she will make to the program this year and in years to come," Sloane-Seale said.

"Meagan has demonstrated a great desire to better herself as a player and it shows in her enthusiasm for the game," Sloane-Seale said. "She is a player who is comfortable on the ball and likes to get herself forward from deep positions. We are excited to have her on board."

The Bisons 2012 campaign will begin with training camp schedule August 13 at the University of Manitoba Turf Fields. A pre-season tournament will be hosted at the university August 24-26 before their first regular season game on Friday, Sept. 7 vs. Winnipeg.
