WVB adds dynamic product from Fort Macleod

July 7, 2017 - Lethbridge College women’s volleyball head coach Anna Schwark is excited to announce the addition of southern Alberta product Jamie Brown to her 2017-18 signing class.  

Jamie, who hails from nearby Fort Macleod, AB, will join the Kodiaks after finishing her final year with the southern Alberta based Panthers Volleyball Club.

As Schwark looks to guide the Kodiaks back into the ACAC post-season tournament, she is extremely excited to add another versatile and well-rounded player to her roster.

“Jamie is one of the most dynamic athletes I have seen, and she will be able to contribute in a number of positions on the court” enthusiastically describes Schwark.

“Her height and athleticism allow her to be a strong force on offense and defense in the front row. These qualities, along with her adaptability and willingness to work hard, will enable her to step into other key roles of the floor.”

Brown is the latest local recruit that will join an up-and-coming Kodiaks squad next season. The 2017-18 signing class also includes the additions of Rae Whitehead, Megan Scott and Mac Lewicki. Brown and Lewicki are currently teammates with the Panthers Volleyball Club U18 program.   

In addition to her talent on the court, Brown’s coachability and work ethic in the classroom has Schwark confident her new recruit will adapt well to the demands of being a student athlete at the collegiate level.    

“We are excited to see how Jamie’s drive aids our program’s goal to become more competitive on the court and in the classroom” says Schwark.
