WOLFVILLE - Acadia Athletics announced player commitments June 23 from Cape Breton and Lunenburg County.

Rachelle Aucoin, Cheticamp, and Abigail Cook, New Germany, will join the Axewomen, soccer coach Amit Batra said in a media release.

 “Rachelle shows great energy on the ball and work rate off of it. I had a chance to see her play again at the Under-18 provincial championships last August," Batra said.

"With Abby, I was able to work with her early and always liked her ability and tenacity. I’ve seen her develop and last May she really started to come into her own and that’s always great to see when a player works really hard and it pays off.”

Aucoin, who plans to study kinesiology and nutrition in Wolfville,  played on her school's boys' squad in her final high school season at Ecole NDA , her club coach Melanie MacLean says.  "This combined with her Nova Scotia Provincial team success gives the level of experience needed to play in the AUS/CIS. Her commitment to her sport and team will never be in question as she has traveled from her hometown of Cheticamp to Sydney, a two hour drive, four times per week, for the past six years as a member of the Cape Breton Selects.”

Cook, a New Germany Rural High School student, says she is keen on studying at Acadia in preparation for career in orthodontics.

" Abby has represented her club and province with ability and is a promising young coach who works with our tier one and regional programs," John Charman, technical director for the South Shore Region says of Cook.
