Stonewall Rams Attacker Signs Letter Of Intent With Men’s Soccer

As another exciting international summer soccer competition kicks into play this weekend, CMU Men's Soccer would like to announce the commitment of Stonewall Collegiate attacking player Chris Wiebe for the 2019-20 MCAC season. The multi-sport athlete has competed for the Rams in soccer, cross-country, basketball and badminton but is looking forward to becoming more focused in soccer as he enters his first year of university.

Wiebe was part of the Stonewall Rams Zone 5 Championship team, playing under the same high school head coach that Blazers' boss, Anderson Pereira competes for in the Manitoba Major Soccer League's Premier Division, Chico Andrade, with Winnipeg Juventus. In 2018, Wiebe began his transition into the province's senior ranks of competition, substituting with his home town club, Stonewall United. Wiebe plans to continue in a similar role this summer while working with local trainer Mark.

"Chris is a really strong athlete with the right mentality to be a positive contributor on what I expect to be a team that will challenge for another conference championship this season," said Pereira. "I've only been able to work with him a few times but I love his attitude and how well he fits in with our group of players."

The sport that Wiebe's name has become most prominently known for so far is badminton. The winner of the 2019 Provincial Boys Singles Championships, Wiebe also recently competed in his fourth Junior National Badminton Championship and competed in his first Senior National Championship last January, playing doubles with his provincial team coach.

Wiebe and the Blazers recently confirmed non-conference plans to compete in their second season of friendies against CCAA competition in Alberta. On September 14th, CMU travels to Medicine Hat to tackle the ACAC's MHC Rattlers followed by a September 15th meeting with the Lethbridge Kodiaks.
