Neepawa’s Jessica Fenty will help lead the Assiniboine Community College Cougars soccer team in its inaugural season in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC).
Fenty was named among the team’s roster prior to its first ever home games this past weekend in Brandon.
“I think it will be a fun season. It’s exciting ACC will finally have a team,” Fenty told The Neepawa Press. “It’s a new team, so we’re learning and we have some girls that are new to the sport or haven’t played for a while, so it should be an interesting season.
“And the coaching is really good. We’ve worked a lot on skills and playing as a team.”
Fenty will be taking Hotel and Restaurant Management at ACC. This is her first year at the school.
The Neepawa product played high school soccer with the NACI Tigers and has spent the past two seasons competing in the Westman Women’s Soccer League with the Neepawa Storm.
Another Neepawa product, Chris Cho, will also be competing in the MCAC this season with the Providence Pilots men’s soccer team out of Otterburne, Man. This will be Cho’s second season with Providence.
