The Manitoba Bison women’s soccer team begins their fourth season in the Canada West conference. They are pleased to announce the team captains for the upcoming 2008 season.

The players have chosen fourth year attacker Bison Desiree Scott as captain and second year defender Michelle Kliment as assistant captain. This is the third season as a captain for Scott and first for Kliment.
 
Bison women’s soccer coach Walt McKee stated, “The two players have the confidence and respect of the players. Desiree continues to be an outstanding leader during her years with the Bisons. Michelle earned her starting position in her rookie year and continues to show progress as she heads into her sophomore season.”
 
Kliment, 19, played her rookie year with the Bisons in 2007. She was a starter at the defender position in nine of 14 regular season games plus started in two playoff games while adding three shots on goal.
 
Scott, 21, had another outstanding season in 2007 at Manitoba. She was third in team scoring with six goals, three assists and fired 47 shots in 15 overall games (regular season and playoffs). She also played for Team Canada at the 2007 Summer Universiade (World University Games). In 2006, Scott was selected as Canada West Second Team All-Star for the second consecutive season as she was tied for sixth in conference scoring with 11 points (6g, 5a). Scott played for Team Canada U-20 Team at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Championship in Russia held August 2006. The Winnipeg native was Canada West Rookie of the Year in 2005 and earned Bison Soccer MVP for 2005 and 2006 season.
