STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC has announced defender Katie Phee to its 2023 USL W League roster, pending league and federation approval. Phee plays for Bishop’s University in Quebec, Canada.
“Katie’s unique combination of speed, quickness and technical ability will help her succeed as an attacking back in our system. She always wants to get forward, both with and without the ball, which is a perfect fit for the way we like to play. She can also combine and provide excellent service from wide positions or she can go straight to goal and create chances for herself. She will be fun to watch and brings another exciting attacking option to our team and our style of play.”Jim Robbins, Tormenta FC USL W League Head Coach
The Nepean, Ontario, native joined Bishop’s University women’s soccer program in 2022. Phee recently culminated her freshman season with Bishop’s University and finished the season with seven appearances and four starts, accumulating 519 minutes her first year with the Quebec-based program.
“I chose Tormenta FC because I would love to help defend a championship, and I enjoy the style of play Coach Jim promotes. Tormenta FC provides an excellent opportunity for me to develop in a professional environment and at a high level of competition in the USL W League.”Katie Phee, Tormenta FC Defender
