Mariner forward Bronte Fitzsimmons has been a force on the pitch all season. The Victoria native is currently second in the PacWest with five goals in nine games this season. This isn’t the first time Fitzsimmons has had success with the Mariners. In her rookie year in 2010, Fitzsimmons was named a CCAA All-Canadian and a BCCAA First Team All-Star. The Navigator caught up with Bronte to ask her 10 questions that have nothing to do with soccer in the first ever segment of 10 questions with a VIU Mariner.

I think it was Now ‘92 or something like that. The Now CD from when I was born.
