The University of Northern BC Women’s Soccer team announced the commitment of Prince George product, Sohanna Bains, for the 2021-2022 Canada West season and beyond.

“It’s unreal. It doesn’t feel like it’s happening. It’s a dream come true. I have always wanted to play for UNBC, so I am just excited. It is so exciting to think of all my friends and family, watching games in Prince George. To see me, from playing in PGYSA to UNBC, it’s pretty cool,” said Bains.

Bains spent the beginning of her career with the Prince George Youth Soccer Association before moving to the Quesnel Youth Soccer Association to finish out her youth career.

Over the last number of years, she has trained with the Epic Junior Timberwolves Academy, led by UNBC head coach Neil Sedgwick.

“Sohanna, like Morgan Holyk this year, is a product of our Timberwolves Academy. Hearing the same messaging for years now, she understands our references and has a great relationship already with our student-athletes. It will be fun to watch her continue to grow when she is full time in the program. I am truly excited to welcome her to our team,” said Sedgwick.

Bains has also trained with UNBC assistant coach Jo Wankling, as well as QYSA coach Jim Nicholas, and a number of past and current Timberwolves.

She is set to graduate from Prince George Secondary School in June and will join her new teammates for a training camp in the summer.
