Kitchen and Monkman qualify for Team BC

The two northwest volleyball players will represent B.C. at the elite level national tournament in Winnipeg this July

Cassidy Kitchen and Morgan Monkman both made Team BC’s 18/17U team. Here they are at the Harry Gerome Volleyball Centre (Velodrome in Burnaby) – Volleyball BC’s ground zero.

Northwest volleyball players Cassidy Kitchen and Morgan Monkman are taking their game to the next level once again.

The pair have been tapped for the Team BC 18/17U team following tryouts in Burnaby May 18-19.

That means, after high performance training at Thompson Rivers University this summer, they’ll represent B.C. at the elite level national tournament in Winnipeg July 15-20.

The National Team Challenge Cup is an annual competition that in non Canada Games years acts as the pinnacle of Team BC competition. Provincial teams from across Canada gather to compete.

Terrace’s Kitchen and Smithers’ Monkman have some experience playing at this level – Kitchen made Team BC 17U last year, while Monkman played for the Western Elites 16U squad.
