Fort St. John’s Brynn Kielo is making the move to Grande Prairie to play varsity soccer.
The North Peace Secondary grad signed with the Northwestern Polytechnic Wolves women's soccer team for the 2023-24 season, the team said Wednesday.
“Brynn comes from an established soccer club in Fort St. John and has developed as a player under the tutelage of Coach Dan Turner,” said Northwestern's head coach Chris Morgan in a news release.
"I remember Brynn as a young girl playing in Fort St. John. She has always showed a hunger to compete in the middle of the park and has a great aptitude for the game. Brynn has all the attributes required to compete at ACAC and we hope to facilitate her development within the game.”
Kielo, a former Northern Striker, was named NPSS Grizzlies team MVP in 2022 and awarded the Golden Boot award for most points at the high school zones last spring. She's also a 2017 Alberta provincial champion.
Kielo follows other recent soccer recruits from Fort St. John to Grande Prairie, including midfielder Mariah Kyllo and defender Tea Brown, who were both on the 2022-23 women’s roster.
In its release, Northwestern said Kielo "is excited for the season ahead and is looking forward to learning and playing with different players."
"She is also looking forward to playing at a more competitive level."
