SPENCER'S ISLAND - For the fourth consecutive year, Meggie Spicer is representing the province in soccer.
The 16-year-old Spencer's Island resident was once again selected to the Nova Scotia under-16 girls team.
"I found out at the end of April that I made the team, but it was a close call because the level of play was really close this year," she said. "For me to make this team for the fourth consecutive year is a big accomplishment. It's a great program."
While the team roster has been selected, Spicer says the positions have yet to be finalized.
"I'm expecting I'll play midfield or winger, but I don't know yet if I'm starting."
Since the age of 11, Spicer has been playing soccer in the competitive level. Eight years before that, she started kicking the ball around.
"Soccer is something I've grown up with. My sister's a good player and my dad was into it, so it was something I grew into. I love it.
"I definitely plan on playing soccer in university, whether I get a scholarship or not. I just love to play."
Being on the provincial team, Spicer says she travels to the city three or four times a week for practice, and practices on her own when she's home.
She plays with the Dartmouth United club and her high school team. However this past year they didn't have enough players.
This summer, Spicer says she will be playing in the under-18 provincial league, then hopefully heading to nationals for five games in August.
