Two Manitoba Bison volleyball players have been named to the 2011 Summer Universiade Canadian women’s volleyball team.
Bisons Tricia Mayba and Kristi Hunter were selected to the 12-member squad that will head to Shenzhen, China from August 12-23.
“Both players will gain a wealth of experience playing against some of the best university athletes in the world and then both return for their fifth and final season at Manitoba,” said head coach Ken Bentley.
Both players will be entering their fifth season with the Bisons for the 2011-12 season. This is their first time representing Canada at a Summer Universiade.
