Maxwell playing final college season at home
BIBLE HILL, N.S. – For Shanice Maxwell, it’s good to be home. After spending four years with the Cape Breton Capers AUS women’s soccer team, Maxwell joined Dal-AC this fall and has been a key contributor for the first-place Rams.
“It’s great to be able to play at home,” said Maxwell, a Truro native and former high school soccer standout at CEC. “I heard that we were going to have a strong team … so I said, why not, I might as well give it all I got for my last year, and now I’m here at my home pitch, so it’s awesome.” Maxwell graduated from CBU with a recreational leadership degree two years ago. She attended hair dressing school last year, and jumped at the chance to join the Rams this season when contacted by coach Jackie Ryan. Maxwell’s extensive resume includes an AUS title with the Capers in 2013. She was also named an AUS all-star in 2012, the same year she won the Golden Boot award for leading the Nova Scotia Soccer League’s senior women’s division with nine goals as a member of Suburban.
