THE University of Winnipeg has hired a new women's soccer head coach.

Amy Anderson, a Winnipeg native, former player and assistant coach with the Wesmen last season, will lead the Wesmen women's soccer team in the upcoming 2014 Canada West season.

"I am thrilled and honoured to have the opportunity to work with the University of Winnipeg women's soccer team," Anderson said in a statement. "I am also looking forward to the challenge of developing a high performance program where the girls love to play the game and have a desire to pass on their knowledge and expertise to the youth of the community.

"These are exciting times for the program and I look forward to working hard with the team."

Anderson is also a former assistant coach with the Manitoba provincial girls' soccer team and a former assistant coach with the University of Manitoba.

University of Manitoba Bisons defenceman Caitlin Fyten has been named to the 2013-14 CIS women's hockey all-rookie team -- the first Bisons women's player to be so honoured since the 2009-10 season.

Playing in all 28 of her team's regular-season games this winter, Fyten, 18 -- who was also named to the 2013-14 Canada West all-rookie team -- finished 8th in all-conference rookie scoring with eight points (1G, 7A) and was tied for 12th in Canada West defenceman scoring.

The Winnipeg Rifles are going to hold a roast for former Winnipeg Blue Bombers great James West as part of the club's annual fundraising dinner April 17 at Investors Group Field.

West, a CFL linebacker for 12 seasons and a Bomber for eight, won two Grey Cups with the Bombers and was a key part of the dominating Bombers defence of the late '80s and early '90s.

Among the speakers scheduled to roast West will be a pair of former Bombers teammates in Chris Walby and Rod Hill. Global TV's Joe Pascucci will be this year's master of ceremonies.

Tickets are on sale at www.riflesfootball.com. Tickets are $175 each or a table of eight for $1,250.
