Pinnacles FC is proud to appoint Jana Yates to our U15 Girls Excelsior District team.
Jana’s soccer career started with Pinnacles FC as a young player within the club. Throughout her competitive career she has played for the Knights at Middle Georgia State University, the WarHawks at Auburn Montgomery University in Alabama , the University of Victoria Vikes and in the W League for the Victoria Highlanders. She has been named NAIA All-American Honorable Mention, NAIA Southern State Conference All-American, and the NAIA Champion of Character Team with the Warhawks in 2010. Recently she was inducted into the Auburn Montgomery University All Decade Team (2020).
Jana grew up in Summerland and is now living locally in Penticton. When she stepped away from her competitive play, she returned to Pinnacles FC and has been coaching at different levels for the club over the past 10 years. She credits PFC for her development as a player and a coach and is currently a member of Penticton’s Pacific Coast team.
We are looking forward to a successful 2021 season and wish Jana great success with her U15 Girls.
