Welcome to the 21st season of Gee-Gees women’s soccer
The University of Ottawa’s women's soccer program has a 20 year-history of accomplishments. Since the program’s founding in 1994 the Gee-Gees have never missed an OUA playoff appearance and have qualified for 12 national championship tournaments.
Heading into the 2014 season, founding head coach Steve Johnson remains at the helm and holds the record for the most OUA championships with seven titles. In addition, he has guided the team to 16 provincial medals along with 8 national medals, and received the OUA East Coach of the Year award in 2013 for the fifth time.
In 2013, the nationally no. 1 ranked Gee-Gees were suddenly eliminated in the first round of the OUA playoffs. During the 2013 regular season the team suffered only one loss in 16 matches and finished first in the OUA East division for a second consecutive year. With 13 goals in 2012, striker Pilar Khoury also beat her own program record for the most individual goals in a season, scoring 14 last year.
2013 also saw goaltender Cynthia Leblanc and midfielder Julia Francki named First-Team All-Canadians. The two are now amongst 21 other Gee-Gees to be named All-Canadians in the soccer program’s history. Leblanc, Francki, Chiara Quadri, Khoury, and graduated seniors Corina Jarrett and Krista Draycott were also named 2013 OUA All-Stars, with Francki claiming the OUA East Player of the Year Award.
