An attacking midfielder, she also helped her Ottawa South United Club team to a silver medal at the 2017 Ontario Player Development League Cup. She played went on to play two seasons with the Ottawa Fury Women’s Premier team.
In the classroom she is a multi-year member of the honour roll.
“I am very excited to join the Tigers and continue my soccer career as a part of Coach Tye’s great program,” says Firstbrook. “When I visited the campus last fall, I was really impressed by how welcoming of an environment it was. Dalhousie has a great academic reputation and I am really looking forward to pursuing my studies in the Biology program.”
Firstbrook will be working on a Bachelor of Science in Biology while attending Dalhousie.
“Hannah is technically and tactically sound midfielder coming from a strong Ottawa Fury program,” says Tye. “She has the ability to keep her team with the ball while creating opportunities for herself and others to be dangerous on the attack. She is also a versatile athlete that can move to other positions if needed. Hannah is a solid student who has shown an ability to balance life both in the classroom and on the field. We look forward to welcoming her to our midfield core!"
The Tigers open the 2020-21 season on September 12, when they host UNB.
