Regina's Brooklyn Reynolds brings size and skill to UBC Okanagan volleyball program

Regina’s Brooklyn Reynolds is among the key new additions this off-season to the UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball program.

A 6-foot-3 middle out of Miller Comprehensive High School and the Regina Cougars U18 program, Reynolds has amassed a number of individual and team awards.

She was named a senior girls volleyball all-star in 2014 and 2015 by the Regina High School Athletic Association. Reynolds was also recognized as the Saskatchewan Volleyball Association’s women’s indoor volleyball 18U female athlete of the year last season.

On the road to winning a gold medal with the Regina Cougars at the 2015 women’s indoor provincials, Reynolds led her team to an undefeated season.

She played her best volleyball of the year in the gold medal match, making an impressive statement about her talent, leadership, and ability to perform in clutch situations, qualities that evidently did not go unnoticed by the Heat program.

“I believe that Brooklyn has all the tools to be an impact middle blocker in Canada West,” said Heat coach Steve Manuel. “She is a physical presence, moves very well, is quick to the ball on both offence and defence and is an excellent blocker. With the graduation of Katy Klomps and Katie Wuttunee, Brooklyn will have the opportunity to play a big role for us immediately.”

For her part, Brooklyn is equally as excited to join the Heat.

“I am looking forward to joining a team who has shown they have what it takes to be successful,” she said. “I am excited to be a part of this program’s future and to get going with my CIS career at UBCO.”

As to why UBC Okanagan appealed to her academically, as she intends to study Management, her answer is simple and reasonable. “I chose UBCO because I was drawn to the smaller class sizes and the intimacy of the campus. In addition, the campus and Okanagan Valley are beautiful places to live and study.”

The former multi-sport high school athlete will join the Heat in September as a CIS student athlete and looks to be ready and in a position to make an immediate impact on a team set to defend its spot on the national stage.
