A Rimbey area teen is already making a name for herself on the volleyball court at the university level.

Shae Boyes has stood out as a exceptional young player in her first year with the University of Alberta/Augustana Vikings.

The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) is pleased to announce that she has been selected as the 2018-19 ACAC Women’s Volleyball Rookie of the Year.

In 19 matches Boyes has accumulated 167 kills, with an average of 2.46 kills per set, 26 service aces, 149 digs, 11 blocks and numerous Player of the Game awards.

“Shae has been an indispensable part of team success this year. She has enhanced our offence, helped solidify our defense and made our service offence more effective,” commented Vikings Head Coach and Director of Athletics, Greg Ryan.

Shae is from Rimbey, AB and is in her first year with the Vikings, playing primarily as a left side. She is enrolled in Bachelor of Arts major in Physical Education (Kinesiology and Sport Studies) and one day hopes to become a Rehabilitation Therapist. Shae is cheered on by supportive parents, Rick and Karen Boyes of Rimbey, and sister Tory.

This prestigious award was presented to Boyes at the 2019 ACAC Women’s Volleyball Championship Ceremony held on February 20, 2019 at Ambrose University in Calgary.

Boyes, who chatted with the Review in a telephone interview, Monday, said she was very pleased to receive the award. She played high school volleyball at Rimbey during Grades 10, 11 and 12 and said it is definitely her sport of choice.

As a first year university student Boyes is very busy between studying and being on the volleyball court, so she is grateful for the break until March 11 when training begins again.

“I am very busy. It’s a lot of work. I’m never sitting around, that’s for sure. I really like being in Camrose, though. It’s a good transition.”

The team finished fourth in the conference championships, moving up substantially from eighth position last year.
