Hoosiers Sign Canadian U-19 National Squad Goalie to Incoming Class
Bloomington, Ind. - The Indiana womens soccer team proudly announces its 10th recruit of the class of 2003. Stacey Van Boxmeer has committed to play for the Hoosiers in the 2003 season. The 58 goalkeeper and Ontario, Canada, native is currently a member of Canadas under-19 national team, coached by Ian Bridge and Shel Brodsgaard.
Over the course of her prep career, Van Boxmeer has been an integral part of the defense as she helped her Ontario Provincial Team to 2000 and 2002 national championships. She has played keeper for the U15 and U16 national youth development teams while she was a keeper on the U17 Canadian national squad.
For each of her four years in high school at Collingwood Collegiate Institute, Stacey was a member of the basketball, volleyball and soccer teams. She is also the captain of her club team, the Collingwood Comets, who have been the Central Girls Soccer League champions in 2000, 2001 and 2002.
Head coach Mick Lyon says
Stacey comes to IU with an incredible amount of experience, playing with club teams and the Canadian U17 and U19 national programs. She is going to add to the goalkeeper position and give us greater depth at that spot. The combination of Stacey and current IU senior Shaunna Daugherty will solidify our goalkeeping position.
