Maxwell CCAA All-Canadian
On Tuesday, the Rams Shanice Maxwell, a Truro native, was named CCAA All-Canadian during an awards ceremony in Halifax.
All-Canadians were selected by their conference based on performance and contribution to their teams.
Maxwell was also ACAA player of the year, leading the Rams to an 8-1-3 first-place record in the regular season.
Maxwell, a former high school soccer standout with the CEC Cougars and former university player at Cape Breton College, scored three game-winning goals this season.
Her experience and leadership, coupled with her vision on the field and precise distribution of the ball, enabled the Rams to take advantage of every opportunity.
Mariah Wright of the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics was the other ACAA player selected as an All-Canadian.
