Mariners saddened to announce ..

April 14th, 2009

The Mariner family is very saddened to announce the passing of a former Malaspina athlete, Sarah Kelly. Sarah played for the Mariners in 2002-03 when the team captured the BCCAA Gold medal and went on to win the Silver Medal in the CCAA National Championships in Quebec City. Sarah played her high school volleyball for Duchess Park, in Prince George where her team captured the AAAA high school championship. Sarah was named the top defensive player that year. Sarah came to Malaspina as a very gifted defensive player. She was a hard worker and a great teammate. Sarah was the type of player that would never let a ball drop on defense. She was not afraid to work hard. What the Mariner Family will remember most about Sarah was her fun, easy going style. Sarah had a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh. Although Sarah has been away from the program for some time she will never be forgotten. On behalf of the coaching staff, players of past and present we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Kelly family.
