Women’s soccer announces its final signee of 2012

Ashley Poirier has signed her letter of intent to join the Jacksonville University women’s soccer team as the eleventh member of the 2012 recruiting class.  She will come to Jacksonville hailing all the way from Nova Scotia. 

"Ashley is an excellent player that brings a tremendous work ethic as well as skill set to the class,” said Dolphin head coach Brian Copham.  “She is a dynamic player that pushes those around her and makes the team better.  She is a versatile player that has played and trained at a high level within the Canadian NTC program and we look forward to her bringing that level of competitiveness in the fall."

Poirier attended Charles P Allen High School in Bedford, Nova Scotia where she starred for the women’s soccer team.  As a junior she was named rookie of the year and followed with a MVP senior season.  During her sophomore year of high school, she was selected to train at one of the prestigious National Training Centres.    Poirier also was the team captain for her club team Suburban FC and was the top goal scorer.  In addition to soccer, she was also a member of her school’s track and field hockey teams. 

The signing marks the eleventh piece of the talented 2012 recruiting class.

"This is a large class not only in number, but also in talent.  We are extremely excited about this class and the talents they are bringing to JU.  We had a great spring with the returners and developed a great deal and look forward to adding the freshmen class and continuing to progress in the fall."
