Cascades add Abbotsford native to women’s volleyball team

After a one-year stint in Cranbrook, MEI grad Ashley Huberts is returning to local volleyball floors this fall.

The University of the Fraser Valley women’s volleyball team announced on Monday that the Abbotsford native is now a member of the Cascades.

Huberts spent one-year with the Cranbrook-based College of the Rockies Avalanche in 2018-19. She suited up in all 24 games in the Pacwest regular season for the Avs, who finished with a record of 4-20 and were eliminated in the first round of the provincials.

The 5-foot-10 outside hitter also starred for the MEI Eagles volleyball teams, helping the school earn back-to-back senior girls 2A provincial championships. She was named tournament most valuable player in her Grade 11 year, and was named to the first team all-star team in her Grade 12 year. Huberts will be reunited with Eagles teammates Karissa Marazzi and Lexi Edwards on the Cascades.

Huberts also played for the AirBorne youth volleyball club, and between the MEI and AirBorne programs, she was a part of six provincial winning teams.

She also excelled at the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games, winning a gold medal in beach volleyball.

Huberts, who is studying psychology at UFV, and the Cascades open the Pacwest regular season on Oct. 11 when they host the Columbia Bible College Bearcats.
