The UBC Okanagan Heat have landed a pair of new recruits for the 2013 PacWest women's soccer season.

Sarah Coghlin, from Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School in Calgary, and Devon Frame, a 5-foot-8 midfielder from Moscrop Secondary in Vancouver, will join Claire Paterson's squad in Kelowna next summer.

Coghlin has a long list of club and high school achievements. She won gold at the U16 tier 1 provincial championships,  then went on to win bronze at the Club Nationals, serving as captain for the squad.

A season later, she won silver at there U18 provincial tier 1 finals.

Coach Claire Paterson has been impressed with her first recruit for 2013, having seen her over a couple of the Heat’s player identification camps.

“I was really impressed with her solid technical base, composure and vision,” she said.  “(Sarah) is an athletic player with good size who I believe will make a solid contribution to our team.”

Coghlin described her first encounter with UBC’s Okanagan campus as a love-at-first-sight situation, saying that she “immediately fell in love with the community-feel" within the campus.

“I have attended two ID Camps and really enjoyed the coaching staff,” she added.  “Their style of coaching and sense of humour, I felt it would be a great fit for me. While playing alongside the Heat team they were friendly and welcoming.”

Frame currently plays for the U18 Mountain United FC from North Vancouver and the B.C .Premier Soccer League p in the U17 / U18 Division.

She was named the most versatile player in 2011, was the co-captain of the Mountain Super Y U14 and U15 squad in 2010.

“Devon is a strong player both technically and physically,” said head coach Claire Paterson.  “She has great vision and determination which makes her a wonderful fit.  I have had the chance to meet and see Devon play over a couple of our ID camps and she has never failed to impress.”

Frame is excited to play for the Heat next season. “I decided to play for the Heat because they have a great coaching staff and an impressive record,” Frame said.  “I like their style of play and believe that I could learn a lot from the team.  I look forward to playing next season.”
