Lady Avs welcome new recruit Brooke Paulsen

Brooke Paulsen, a left side from Oakbank, Manitoba is very excited to be joining the COTR Avalanche for the 2015-2016 season. As captain of the Springfield Sabres, she was awarded with MVP every year for her high school team and had the privilege of being a starting power for all 5 years of her club career. When finished her club seasons, Brooke enjoyed much success in playing beach during the off season.

After receiving MVP for two consecutive years at Providence Sports Camps, Paulsen decided to join the Providence University College Pilots for her freshman year. Being a starting left side, Paulsen lead the team to the NCCAA Div II regional championship and to the MCAC championship as well.

Brooke is very excited to make the move to BC to play with such a talented group of student athletes and bring her volleyball to the next level.

Brooke will be enrolled in the University Studies Program at COTR.
