GRIZZLIES ADD LOCAL TALENT SYDNEY SMISKO TO WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL

The Georgian Grizzlies women's volleyball program is pleased to announce the addition of Sydney Smisko out of Innisdale Secondary School in Barrie, ON.

A left side hitter, Smisko will be pursuing her passion in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Collaborative Program starting in the fall.

"I got accepted to some other programs but this program at Georgian was my first choice," said Smisko. "The ability to stay at home and move onto my post-secondary education in my hometown is great."

Being local with plenty of ties to the Grizzlies team, the transition should be a smooth one for Smisko.

"I already know a bunch of girls on the team and they have been great. I can't wait to start playing volleyball at a higher level and to start the nursing program."

Having coached her over the last number of years through the Barrie Elites Volleyball Club, Grizzlies Head Coach Brad Graham knows what he will be getting in his latest recruit.

"She works really hard at her game," said Graham. "Being able to watch her develop on my club team, I look forward to watching her grow into an exceptional player at the OCAA level."

The Georgian Grizzlies 2017-18 women's volleyball season will begin in October. For more information on how to become a varsity athlete please visit GeorgianGrizzlies.ca
