WVB | Morrison set to join Kodiaks

June 3, 2019 – The Lethbridge College Kodiaks women’s volleyball team have made another signing, as head coach Anna Schwark is excited to introduce Kylie Morrison as the latest addition to her 2019-20 recruiting class.

Morrison hails from St. Albert, AB and will join the Kodiaks after graduating from Bellerose High School.

She has experience playing with the Pandas club program and is finishing her club career with NAVC. 

Schwark feels like she’s found another key roster piece that can make an immediate impact.

“Kylie is a very strong and naturally talented athlete,” says Schwark. “She passes well and is a force at the net on the left side.”

The Kodiaks closely monitored Morrison’s progression through high school and club play and were left feeling confident she will bring many positive intangibles on and off the court.  

“From the start our coaching staff was very interested in Kylie,” says Schwark. “She is a naturally talented volleyball player, but her maturity off the court was another reason we felt she would be a great addition to our program. She is an athlete that can contribute on the court, but girls like Kylie are also important in creating the culture we want because of her attitude and competitive mentality.”  

When asked for her thoughts on joining the team, Morrison expressed great excitement at starting her collegiate volleyball journey.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Kodiaks for the 2019-20 season,” said Morrison. “Playing post-secondary has been a huge goal of mine so getting the opportunity to play in Lethbridge is a huge step forward for me to pursue my volleyball career, as well as academics.” 

“I can’t wait to become part of the program and contribute in whatever way that I can next year and in the coming years.”

Morrison will begin Lethbridge College’s well-regarded Child and Youth Care program once the fall semester begins in September.   

Looking ahead 

The Kodiaks are coming off a tough season where they missed the ACAC post-season, after qualifying the previous year. They will begin training camp in September with conference play beginning in October.
