WINNIPEG — Playing volleyball just runs in the family for Emma Parker.
The St. Norbert Collegiate student just completed her final season with the Celtics Varsity Girls’ team, finishing third at Provincials.
Parker has since joined the University of Winnipeg Wesmen program for the 2017-18 Canada West season in September.
Parker’s father, Will, played for the Wesmen from 1982-1987. Her mother, Ardith (Lernout), starred for the Wesmen Women’s Volleyball program in the 1980’s and was a teammate of head coach Diane Scott.
“We are so pleased to have Emma join our women’s volleyball program,” Scott said. “She is an outstanding athlete on all levels: speed, jump, agility, game sense and composure. She has tons of upside still to develop and is already keen to get started.”
