WOU adds to soccer roster
MONMOUTH — The Western Oregon soccer program has announced the addition of Emily Wheeler to their 2019 recruiting class in an announcement made by the WOU Athletics Department on Wednesday.
Wheeler, a senior at Roseburg High School, was named the Goalkeeper of the Year for the Southwest Conference last fall.
A two-time team captain, she was also tabbed as an all-conference selection both her junior and senior seasons with the Indians. Wheeler recorded three shutouts her senior season.
“We are excited to add Emily to our fall roster as a goalkeeper,” said Western Oregon head coach Kacey Bingham. “She will add depth to our goalkeeping core. She has great size and shot-stopping ability as well an excellent attitude and work ethic.”
The Wolves open their 2019 season Sept. 7 against Western Colorado in Alamosa, Colorado. They will play their first home game Sept. 19 against Hawai’i Pacific at WOU Soccer Field.
