Metro Vancouver…..The KPU Eagles department of athletics and recreation and women’s soccer head coach, Julie King are pleased to welcome Sydney Antonyk, North Delta, BC as the first recruit to sign with the Eagles program for 2015/16.
"Sydney is a talented player and I am thrilled that she has chosen to come to KPU to pursue her post secondary academic studies,” stated Coach King, “She gives us other options going forward. I think that she is going to provide the program with something extra that we didn’t have last year.”

An honour roll student at Delview Secondary in North Delta, BC, Antonyk is currently in her senior year and will study psychology and criminology at KPU in the Fall. On the pitch, she comes to the Eagles with strong experience and versatility as a forward and an attacking midfielder. Antonyk’s playing history includes playing with the Delta Coastal Selects and the Total Soccer Systems (TSS) Academy Elite Girls program.
“It is players of Sydney's calibre, combined with the quality players we have here, that will help to drive our program forward,” noted Coach King, “She has excellent character and great leadership potential. She has the determination and work ethic that is a good fit for the culture that we are trying to create. I anticipate that she will make an excellent contribution to the women's soccer program here at KPU, both on and off the field.”
Warm welcome to the KPU Eagles women's soccer family!
