Rockies high on Vernon volleyball player

Cranbrook’s College of the Rockies Avalanche have swept up a Vernon player for their women’s volleyball team.

The Avalanche have signed Maisa Orosz, a six-foot middle-outside hitter who played high school volleyball for W.L. Seaton Secondary Sonics, and suits up with the Vernon Sky club program.

“We’re very happy to have Maisa join our program,” said John Swanson, women’s Avalanche coach. “She is a versatile player who has experience as both an outside hitter and a middle. Her athleticism and passion will be welcome additions to our team and we look forward to having her join the Avalanche family.”

Orosz will be enrolled in the University Studies: Arts and Sciences program.

“I chose College of the Rockies because I enjoy the feel of a small college,” said Orosz. “The campus is beautiful and I am excited to be in a small class environment. I am also thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to play for the Avalanche with great coaching staff and a wonderful group of girls.”
