Volleyball title for UC grad

Mariah Bruinsma, a Unity Christian graduate in 2009, captured a CIS volleyball national championship this past weekend as a member of the UBC Thunderbirds.

UBC won in Quebec City, defeating host Laval University in the final in straight sets (25-16, 25-18, 25-14).

As a sophomore, Bruinsma jumped into the starting middle position two weeks ago after an injury to starter Jessica Vonschilling.

“As a school community, we are all very excited for Mariah,” said Unity Christian vice principal Mike Campbell. “She was a natural leader at our school, not only in sport. She built many friendships with her peers of all ages at Unity, and many younger students and teachers were watching the final on the weekend streamed from their computers.”

In her high school days, Bruinsma was the captain of both the UC volleyball and basketball teams, helping lead her basketball team to a silver medal in the 2009 1A provincials.
