St Clair Announces Volleyball Signing

(WINDSOR, ON) – The St Clair College Department of Athletics and women’s volleyball program has announced the signing of top recruit Te-Anna Stephenson to a Letter of Intent for the 2017-18 season.

Stephenson, a 5’ 11” outside hitter, is from Whitby, where she attended Sinclair Secondary School and captured an OFSAA gold in grade 10 playing up with the senior team. She played her U18 club season for Phoenix Legacy Volleyball out of Toronto

Stephenson is excited to be joining St Clair in the fall.

“When I first visited the school I immediately felt welcomed by all the girls on the team,” Stephenson said. “I loved the environment and the people. The atmosphere of the Sportsplex at the OCAA provincial championship was amazing, and so were the fans. It’s fair to say that I was sold on the first night of my visit.”

Head coach Jimmy El-Turk could not be happier to have Stephenson on board.

“We are very excited to announce Te-Anna’s commitment to St Clair College,” he said. “She was late getting on our radar, but after watching her play for a few minutes, I was immediately drawn to her competitiveness on the floor. She is driven to win and I’m confident that she is going to fit in and make a positive impact on our training environment from day 1.”

St Clair finished the regular season with a record of 12-6 in the OCAA West Division and 3rd place. The Saints hosted the OCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship and narrowly missed out on a medal finishing in 4th place in the province.
