CORNER BROOK — The MUN - Grenfell Warriors Varsity volleyball team has welcomed to one of centrals finest volleyball athletes.

Kelsei Rogers has been selected as a member of the team. The team has already won an invitational tournament held in Corner Brook back in September and just missed out on the bronze medal in an Atlantic varsity tournament held at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax id-October.

In addition to tournaments, the Warriors also compete in the Corner Brook city league as well. The team is comprised of girls attending the MUN campus in Corner Brook. As a first year student, it was a little surprising to Kelsei that she made the team, but her extensive volleyball experience over the years, really paid-off.

While being awarded over $9,000 in academic scholarships so far this year has helped the financial burdens of University life, there as been quite an adjustment from high school. The balancing act of trying to juggle a five course pre-pharmacy workload, a fairly heavy volleyball practice/tournament schedule, as well as a busy social life can be quite challenging, but Kelsei is handling it fine form.

The next tournament for the Warriors is tentatively scheduled for sometime before Christmas in St. John's, where they will be competing against the MUN Seahawks.

When asked about some advice to give the younger up and coming players Kelsei said, “Stick with the program, both academically and athletically. Work hard, with passion and intensity, and have fun!”
