The Dalhousie Tigers women’s soccer head coach Cindy Tye is proud to announce the commitment of Annabel Gravely for the 2019-20 season.
Gravely is a 5’6 goalkeeper from Toronto, Ontario. She played with the Aurora Stingers in the Ontario Player Development League for the last two years and the Leaside Tigers Soccer Club prior to that. As a member of Leaside, she was a two-time Central Girls Soccer League champion and a three-time team MVP.
“I am looking forward to playing the game I love in a new and welcoming environment,” says Gravely. “I can’t wait to live in such a beautiful city and have a unique university experience, but most of all I am very excited to get to know the Tigers family.”
A well-rounded individual, Gravely was named the University of Toronto Schools varsity soccer team MVP in 2018 and was awarded the Don Fawcett Award for achieving significant goals in academics, athletics, and leadership. An Advanced Placement Scholar, she was also awarded the 2018 W. Bruce MacLean Mathletic Award for high marks in math while participating in athletics and the 2016 Walter Bark Award for spirited and unselfish participation in athletics and high academic merit.
Gravely has been accepted to the Integrated Science program at Dalhousie.
“Annabel is an athletic goalkeeper with a strong technical foundation that will help us further strengthen our goalkeeping core,” says Tye. “She is an exceptional student both in the classroom and on the field. Coachable and competitive, we look forward to welcoming her to the program!”
The Tigers start their 2019 campaign September 6, when they travel to Moncton, before retuning home September 8 to host Acadia.
