The Manitoba Bison women’s volleyball team has locked up three players from within the province for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
Recruits Lexi Janovcik, Kalena Schulz and Tori Studler have committed to playing for the defending CIS women’s volleyball champions.
“While we retain the vast majority of our team for the coming season, we do need to start looking to the future as well as the current core will soon be finished their academic and athletic career at Manitoba,” head coach Ken Bentley said. “All three are exceptional student-athletes and come into our program with a strong base of skill and understanding of the game.”
Janovcik, 18, is a 5’9” outside hitter player from Westgate Mennonite Collegiate, Schulz, 17, is a 5’9” left side hitter player from MBCI (Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute), and Studler, 17, is a 6’0” outside hitter player from Neelin High School in Brandon.
The Bisons are coming off their most successful seasons in the program’s history when they went 9-0 to capture the national championship title.
