A strong year both on the volleyball court and in the classroom has earned Kelowna's Veronica Livingstone Ryerson University's female athlete of the year award for 2013-14.

Playing for Toronto's Ryerson Rams women's program in the Ontario East Division of the CIS, Livingstone, 19, led her team to the playoffs for the second year in a row, ranking 15th in the nation in kills.

The Immaculata grad, who was nominated but lost for female Rookie of the Year at last year’s banquet, won after a successful season, in which she was named an Ontario East first team all-star. Her 3.69 points per game were eighth in the conference.

“It is an amazing honour,” said Livingston. “I have an amazing team, staff and family who support me and push me so that I can have the chance to be a part of situations like these.

“Honestly, there were so many talented women in contention for this award I fully felt that I didn’t stand a chance.”

A graduate of Immaculata Regional High School, Livingstone played for the Mustangs volleyball team under head coach Brian Drosdovech, and is a grad of the UBCO Heat's Volleyball Centre of Excellence.
