Lady Buffaloes land Canadian midfielder

from staff reports

   Stephanie Junkin, a high school senior from Brampton, Ontario, has signed a national letter of intent to attend Milligan College and play for the Lady Buffs soccer program next season.
   Junkin played in the Ontario Youth Soccer League, representing Burlington, Richmond Hill and, most recently, Oakville, one of the largest and most respected soccer clubs in Canada.
   In 2000 she received the Player Achievement Award from the Richmond Hill Soccer Club. As a midfielder for Notre Dame High School, Junkin served as team captain. She also was a member of the Ontario Provincial Team for three years.
   Milligan head coach Dave Dixon is looking forward to working with Junkin.
   "Stephanie is an outstanding midfielder," he said. "She likes to attack, and I think she's going to combine well with the players we already have.
   "Her distribution and passing skills are excellent and I think she has the ability to make the players around her better. We are going to be a more dangerous attacking team with Stephanie on the field."
