Middle player named MVP of PEISAA volleyball championship
KINKORA – It didn’t take Faith Reeves of Shamrock long to make an impact in P.E.I. School Athletic Association senior volleyball.
The Grade 10 student, who plays the middle position, was named the most valuable player of the 2018 P.E.I. School Athletic Association Senior A Girls Volleyball League championship tournament in November, after playing a key role in the Blazers capturing Kinkora Regional High School’s (KRHS) first provincial title in 27 years at that level.
As a result of her efforts and contributions, the 16-year-old daughter of Carmen Reeves and Heather Green was recently selected as KRHS’s Greco Pizza/Capt. Sub student-athlete of the month.
“Faith has an outstanding work ethic and love for the game of volleyball,” said Evan Killorn, head coach of the Blazers’ senior A girls. “She is a leader of the team’s defence and passing, and is a strong server and an improving attacker.”
Faith is no stranger to playing in pressure-filled provincial championships. She also earned provincial championship tournament all-star honours in helping the Jonny Martin-coached Kinkora team win the 2017 PEISAA Intermediate A Girls Volleyball League championship in her Grade 9 year.
Outside of school, Faith plays indoor volleyball with the Red Rock program, beach volleyball in the summer and is a forward with North River of the P.E.I. Midget A Female Hockey League.
Faith’s future plans following high school include attending university, and she is considering a career in engineering.
