Langleys TWU adds a goalie and a striker to boost roster

Trinity Western University women’s soccer coach Graham Roxburgh continues to build his 2014 class, mining Calgary for his latest duo of goalie Sophia Traxler and striker Natalie Arnett. Both have a range of experience.

Traxler joins the Spartans with a proven track record at both the provincial and national level.

The 5-foot-7 goalkeeper earned a bronze medal at the U16 club national championship with the Calgary NSD Saints and also collected national silver (U15) and bronze (U16) medals while playing with the Alberta Selects.

“Sophie is a solid keeper who we are excited is joining our program,” Roxburgh said. “She will provide both competition for our keeper position and give us some depth as we transition into having three keepers that are all vying for playing time on our roster.”

Arnett, a 5-foot-6 forward, won a bronze medal with her U16 side at the Canadian club national championship.

In 2012, she also won the golden boot at the U16 Girls All Star National Championship.

“I believe that Natalie is an excellent signing for our program and I think that she will develop into a very dangerous forward because of her speed and strength,” Roxburgh said.
