V-Reds welcome Richard and Quiring to Volleyball Program

The UNB Varsity Reds women's volleyball program is very pleased to announce that Allison Quiring and Claire Richard have committed to UNB for 2014-15.

Quiring, and Richard have very similar volleyball backgrounds having played for Club de Volleyball des Castors, Team New Brunswick and the Reds Volleyball Club.

"I cannot wait for next year, and to be able to call myself a Varsity Red" said Quiring who hails from Douglas, NB. "I am so fortunate to be able to study at UNB and play volleyball; hopefully these next few years will be filled with lots of successes."

Richard, from New Maryland, N.B., said that, "I'm more than delighted to be joining a team, coach and program that I've admired for a long time.  I'm ready to contribute my best to the team and to UNB athletics."

"We are very lucky to be adding two more top New Brunswick players to our roster for 2014," said UNB Head Coach Jilliane Goulet.

"Claire has shown her work ethic at our Elite Volleyball Training Center, and Allison has been working just as hard at the Sport Étude in Moncton.  Both have been standout players for their clubs and will fit in well with their work ethic and ability."

Both young women will study in the Kinesiology program while at UNB.
