Hadley Schmidt of Saskatoon has verbally committed to play for the TRU WolfPack women’s volleyball team.
The 5-foot-10 setter is expected to join the Pack in time for the 2020-2021 Canada West season.
“I loved the hometown feeling as soon as I arrived in Kamloops,” said Schmidt, who has played for her province and the Sask Stealth club program.
“When I practised with the team, I loved the family feeling and the way the girls welcomed me with open arms.”
WolfPack head coach Chad Grimm said Schmidt, the first TRU women's volleyball recruit from Saskatchewan in more than a decade, is part of the team’s succession plan at setter.
“We have Anastasiya (Muzyka) and Abby (Spratt) back-to-back years, but they will leave us at some point,” Grimm said.
“She is a good athlete and is not afraid to take calculated risks on the floor.”
