One of the most decorated women’s soccer players in Canada West history, Kristen Funk helped Trinity Western win three CIS championships, and three Canada West banners over her sparkling five-year career in goal between 2008 and 2012.
The five-foot-six goalkeeper from Calgary was a back-to-back First Team All-Canadian and Canada West First Team All-Star in 2011 and 2012. During the Spartans national title runs in 2009 and 2012 she was also selected as a CIS championship all-star. Her finest season was in 2012, when she was tops among Canada West goalkeepers in goals against average (0.33) and shutouts (9), while leading TWU to first place with an 11-1 record.
During her fourth and fifth seasons, the Spartans went nearly a calendar year without a loss, recording a 21-game unbeaten streak spanning September 16, 2011 to September 8, 2012.
As of 2019, Funk holds the Canada West regular season record for wins with 43 and is fourth in conference history for shutouts with 30. With nearly 5,000 minutes played, Funk is fifth all-time in that category and also sports the conference’s third best career save percentage at .863.
