Feb. 7, 2014
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – University of Memphis women’s soccer head coach Brooks Monagahan announced Friday that Surrey Christian Secondary School forward Sessen Stevens has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Lady Tigers for the 2014-15 season. Stevens is the second signee in the 2014-15 class.
"We believe Sessen is the type of player that can come into our program and make an immediate impact,” Monaghan said. “When we were recruiting her, we were thinking of her as a replacement for Christabel Oduro. Sessen possesses all the tools that you look for in a top class forward. She is fast, athletic, good on the dribble and has a knack for the goal. I think the sky is the limit for her. Not only is Sessen a very talented soccer player, she is extremely focused in the classroom. Sessen was a highly recruited player that we are extremely excited to have joining our program."
Stevens, a native of North Delta, British Columbia, was invited to the U17 Canada National Camp in 2013. Stevens played on the British Columbia Provincial Team from 2011-13 earning a silver medal at the Canadian National Tournament in 2011. She was the captain of the 2012 British Columbia Provincial Team which won the bronze medal at the Canadian National Tournament.
On the club level, Stevens starred for the Vancouver Whitecaps. Stevens helped the club claim the PCSL, MWSL and McAdams Cup in 2013, becoming the second team in history to win all three titles.
Sessen is the daughter of David and Ruth Stevens. She is a four-year honor roll selection at Surrey Christian.
