Notes  Niagara Falls native Carlee Cardwell-Alderson has spent almost 20 years of her life playing soccer. She has proved herself to be an exceptional athlete, rising through the ranks of minor soccer before playing for Stamford Collegiate, the University of Toronto, and the Ontario Provincial Team. At the age of 17, Carlee trained with the Senior Women’s National Soccer Team. At the time, there was only one division for National Women’s Soccer, which was the Senior Team. While at high school, with Carlee contributing her athletic abilities, the 1987 and 1988 Stamford Senior Girls Soccer Teams became the reining Zone champions, S.O.S.S.A. champions and 1988 O.F.S.A.A. semi-finalists and 1987 bronze medalists. In 1987, Carlee received the Most Valuable Player Award for the Senior Girls Soccer Team. An outstanding athlete, Carlee also played on the girls hockey team, the senior girls basketball team, badminton team and Stamford’s track and field team, receiving many honours.
After high school, Carlee attended the University of Toronto and she joined the University of Toronto’s Varsity Blues women’s soccer team and spent four seasons playing soccer. During her four years as a physical education student, she was one of the most influential players in the country. Carlee was instrumental in the team’s success, with an Ontario Women’s Interuniversity Athletic Association (O.W.I.A.A.) bronze medal in 1989 and a silver medal in 1990. She also guided the team to gold and silver finishes at the prestigious Big Four Tournament. Named an all-star by both the O.W.I.A.A. and C.I.A.U. in each of her four seasons. In 1989, Carlee was the only rookie recognized as an All-Canadian. In June 2005, Carlee became the first woman soccer player to be inducted into the illustrious University of Toronto’s Sports Hall of Fame. The achievements of Carlee Cardwell have made her a worthy addition to the Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame.
