Earl Marriott's Beamish to join Heat
Earl Marriott Secondary’s Brianna Beamish will be heading to Kelowna next year to continue her volleyball career.
Beamish, the Mariner senior girls team’s five-foot-11 outside hitter, committed last week to the UBC-Okanagan Heat.
The Heat play in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s (CIS) Canada West Conference.
“I am so excited to be coming into the Heat program,” Beamish said. “I chose UBC-O because it’s a great school that is not too big and also close to home.”
Beamish brings with her some impressive credentials. She has helped EMS to provincial medals the past two seasons – and was named provincial all-star in both tournaments – and has also captured two B.C. titles, and one national crown, with her club team, the Seaside Surf.
“We couldn’t be happier that Brianna is joining our program… We believe that she has all the attributees to help us succeed at the Canada West level,” said Heat coach Steve Manuel. “She has a bright career ahead of her.”
