Abbotsford native Rosie Schlagintweit has been selected by Volleyball BC for a 2013 Ray Lepp scholarship.
Schlagintweit, in her fourth year as an outside hitter on the UBC women’s volleyball squad, and her Thunderbirds teammate Alex Russell of Surrey were selected for the award, which recognizes volleyball and personal excellence.
“These athletes have demonstrated significant potential for international success,” said Volleyball BC president Tom Jones. “They are both great role models and have excelled at all levels here in B.C.”
Schlagintweit, a Yale Secondary grad, has helped the T-Birds win Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) national championships in each of her first three seasons with the program, and they’re ranked No. 1 again this fall.
