Daniella Gerig is going to China.

The forward for the Trinity Western Spartans women’s soccer team was chosen as an injury replacement to play for Team Canada at next month’s FISU (World University) Games in Shenzen, China. They run Aug. 12-23.

The Walnut Grove graduate led the Spartans in scoring last season with 10 points and was tied for the team-lead with another local soccer product going to China, Nikki Wright. Both players had seven goals.

The pair will be joined on the roster by goalkeeper Kristen Funk, defender Jillian Dietrich and midfielders Natalie Boyd and Melissa Mobilio.

Defender Kristen Santema was forced to pull out because of injury.

Trinity Western’s Graham Roxburgh and Neil Turner are also on the Canadian coaching staff.
