Head Coach Tom Stone on Janine Beckie
"Janine was a player we targeted two years ago after seeing her lead her youth team, Real Colorado National to the national championships. I think she had six goals at the Regional event in six games and was simply running away from people. Since that time she has had the opportunity to play for the U-18 National Team and has developed her game even further in some key areas. Her REAL Colorado coaches, under DOC Lorne Donaldson, have taken a keen interest in Neener's development and have really helped her game progress to a national team level. Janine loves to run at people and shoots extremely well on the dead sprint--Beckie can make an immediate impact as a freshman and will be an exciting player for our fans to watch for the next four years."
