In a record-breaking season for the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) women’s soccer team, Whitehorse striker Emily Fedoriak led the way offensively with seven goals and was named to her second consecutive all-star team.

The team went 9-1 during the regular season in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) south division before losing two tough games in the playoffs to finish 4th and just outside the medals.

“When it came down to the semifinals all the teams are fairly evenly matched,” Fedoriak said.

After leading her team in scoring throughout the season with seven goals in 10 games, Fedoriak was named as a striker to the south division all-conference team for a second straight year. This time she was joined by three teammates, the first time four SAIT players were awarded in one year.

“I was pretty surprised,” Fedoriak said of the recognition. “I’m graduating this year and it was a privilege to play soccer more than anything. I’m very honoured.”

Fedoriak also led the Trojans in game-winning goals during the season with three, which tied her for second in the ACAC.

Growing up in the Whitehorse Minor Soccer program for as long as she can remember, Fedoriak represented the Yukon at two Western Canada Summer Games as well as the 2009 Canada Summer Games before heading off to Calgary for school. After just completing her third and final season with the Trojans, Fedoriak said she wants to continue playing soccer in whatever capacity she can.

“I was honoured enough they named me captain this year for the SAIT team which was a huge surprise,” she said of the recognition. “It’s really motivated me to continue being a part of the Calgary soccer community as well as back in the Yukon.”
