Wpg Free Press: Courting a championship

October 2, 2014 — 

The Winnipeg Free Press writes an in-depth look at the Bison Women’s Volleyball team.

As Melissa Martin notes in her article, the Bisons women’s volleyball team rose to the top of the nation last season, winning their first CIS title in 12 years. She reports on how they are trying to do it all over again.

As she reports in her first article of a series she will write on the team:

Time to dig deep with the reigning CIS champions. This season, the Free Press is going behind the scenes of the University of Manitoba Bisons women’s volleyball team, and their quest to defend their national title. We will follow the unfolding story of what it takes to create elite university athletes, and meet the players and coaches who are writing the latest chapter in Manitoba’s storied volleyball history.

Today, we launch the project with a trip down memory lane — and a look at how the Bisons are preparing now to stay on top of their game.
