Angels help UBC Claim Gold at 2023 Women’s Volleyball Championships
The seventh ranked UBC Thunderbirds upset the No. 1 seed and defending champion Trinity Western Spartans to win gold at the 2023 U SPORTS Women's Volleyball Championship on Sunday.
Notable Angel Alums Gisella Goodger ’19, Lucy Borowski ‘21, and Elizabeth Lee ’22 were all part of the Thunderbird team that stormed their way through the Championship tournament. This is the 12th national championship for UBC and their first since 2019. Other Angels that have repped the blue and gold include Jessica Goodridge ’18 and Emily Cordonier ’01, who was also part of the broadcast commentary team that saw UBC claim victory this past Sunday.
LFA’s own Coach Ballard couldn’t be happier to see the young women he coached early on in their volleyball careers go on to see such success on the national stage. The LFA community at large is incredibly proud to see these Angels follow their passions and thrive. Way to go!
