Canada West would like to recognize two individuals from the 2016/17 16U Women's team. Not only did they lead their team to a division II Gold Medal during the AVA season but they also had great personal growth this year. Kalysta Knappett (Libero) and Gillian Wayne-Nixon (Right Side) have been selected to try out for Team Alberta. This is an outstanding achievement limited to very few players and these girls are to be commended for their talent and hard work.
As a further recognition for her hard work and high caliber of play this season Kalysta Knappett was also one of only 6 girls in the U16 age bracket from Calgary that was invited to try out for a position on the Youth Canada National Team.
Canada West would like to congratulate Kalysta and Gillian for a great season and best of luck in their future.
