Indiana University's Jakie Köhli Named to Canada's 2011 World University Games Roster
OTTAWA, Canada - Indiana rising senior Jakie Köhli (Burnaby, B.C., Canada/Moscrop Secondary) has been selected to represent Canada at the 2011 World University Games in Shenzhen, China on August 12-22, announced on Tuesday by the Canadian Interuniversity Sport, in conjunction with Water Polo Canada.
Köhli will be making her second appearance at the FISU Games, as she was part of the Canadian squad that finished fourth during the 2009 event in Belgrade, Serbia. The Burnaby, B.C. native is one of 13 players chosen to compete for Canada in the games.
Canada will compete in Pool A in the preliminary round against Great Britain (Aug. 12), Italy (Aug. 14), as well as defending champion and tournament host China (Aug.16). The gold medal final is scheduled for Aug. 22.
Köhli is coming off a stellar junior campaign with the Hoosiers in 2011, posting totals of 71 goals, 37 assists, and 89 steals. Her 71 goals is the fifth highest single-season scoring mark in program history, which is a record she holds after scorching the nets for 80 during her sophomore season.
Köhli also became one of seven Hoosiers to eclipse 100 goals, 100 assists, and 100 steals in a career. Rising junior Kelsey Campbell (Maple Ridge, B.C., Canada/Maple Ridge Secondary) and Lauren Wyckoff '11 (Los Altos, Calif./Los Altos) of the 2011 Indiana team have also accomplished that feat. Köhli's career totals are 180 goals, 103 assists, and 223 steals.
