Wilson ready to join Volleyball Hurricanes

The Holland Hurricanes women’s volleyball team can count on the skills of Fredericton, New Brunswick native, Kali Wilson, next season.

Wilson, a 5’6” outside hitter/libero is set to begin the Electronics Engineering Technology program this September.

“The availability of my program with the opportunity to play for a program of this caliber led me to commit to Holland College,” she said.  “I’ve met a few of the girls and look forward to being a part of this dedicated team.”

Wilson has been a member of the Spartans Volleyball Club as well as a member of the Leo Hayes High School team in recent years.  In 2019, the Spartans took home a provincial silver and a gold at the Mizuno Volleyball Festival in Boston, while in 2018 they claimed a national gold.  She also has spent time playing for the Volleyball New Brunswick provincial teams at various levels.

When asked about her strengths on the volleyball court, Wilson had this to say.

“Footwork and strength are very important as a player, being able to efficiently and quickly move to where I have to be has allowed my defense to excel.  My recent training has increased my strength and improved me as a player by increasing my vertical and hitting power.”

The Hurricanes are coming off a 15-6 regular season in 2018-19, where they went on to take home a silver medal in the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA).

“I think my team-first attitude and being dedicated on training/practicing is a way I can contribute to the team,” she shared.  “I bring a lot of energy to the court whether I’m practicing, playing or on the sidelines being ready to sub in.”
