December 15, 2012, KELOWNA, BC (ISN) –  Not long after getting Sarah Coghlin to commit to playing for the Heat women’s soccer team next fall, Heat coach Claire Paterson has now convinced Devon Frame to come to come and join her team at UBC’s Okanagan campus.

Frame, a Vancouver product from Moscrop Secondary school, has had a successful high school career on the turf and in the classroom.  The 5’8’’ midfielder currently plays for the U18 Mountain United FC from North Vancouver, BC, and the BC Premier Soccer League – U17 / U18 Division.

She was named the Most Versatile Player in 2011, was the Co-Captain of the Mountain Super Y U14 & U15 squad in 2010, and was named the Impact and Inspirational Player in 2010 also.  In 2011 she helped bring home the 2011 Welsh International Super Cup championship and the 2011 Burnaby District Banner back to Moscrop.

“Devon is a strong player both technically and physically,” says Paterson.  “She has great vision and determination which makes her a wonderful fit.  I have had the chance to meet and see Devon play over a couple of our ID camps and she has never failed to impress.”

A consistent Honour Roll student, Frame is also active in the community, volunteering with North Shore Soccer Development and the Kidney Foundation.  She has academic interests in Public Relations, and became a published poet in 2008. 

Devon has already started a great relationship with coach Claire and the rest of the coaching staff, and is excited to play for the Heat next season.  “I decided to play for the Heat because they have a great coaching staff and an impressive record,” she said.  “I like their style of play and believe that I could learn a lot from the team.  I look forward to playing next season.”
