May 28, 2013, Charlottetown, PEI (ISN) – UPEI women’s hockey Head Coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to announce Calgary native Cornelia Geib is joining the Women’s Hockey team this fall.
Geib played with the Calgary Flyers Midget AAA team this past season and served as team captain. An offensive player who participated in 32 games accumulating 15 goals and 18 assists for 33 points, Geib was selected to participate in the 2012–13 Alberta Midget AAA All-Star game.
“Any time you can attract a player of Cornelia’s skillset, you have to be very pleased,” commented Coach Donaldson. “Cornelia was the team captain for one of the top midget teams in Alberta. She brings leadership, work ethic, offense and team play to our program and will be a valued addition to our roster.”
Geib comments, “Having spent many summers in PEI, it is exciting to think about university life in Charlottetown. Playing for the Panther hockey team and stepping into the School of Business will be a great new experience. A terrific school, athletic opportunity and life balance, I look forward to getting started!”
“It’s wonderful that Cornelia’s familiarity with our great province and our women’s hockey program helped with her decision to commit to UPEI,” said UPEI Director of Athletics and Recreation Bill Schurman. “Once she’s on campus, we will help ensure she has a memorable and rewarding student-athlete experience.”
