Lac La Ronge Indian Band member Rylee Bell will continue her volleyball career at the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook, B.C. this coming fall.

“I chose to come to College of the Rockies because of the environment,” said Bell. “The way that the coach, Bryan, described the community that surrounds the college sounded perfect for me. I believe that this team can help me grow not only as a volleyball player but as a person.”

Bell is an outside hitter and has spent time playing with the Saskatchewan Stealth club program. She will be in enrolled in the biology and medicine pre-major associate degree program

“Rylee is going to be an essential member of our program as she has everything we’re looking for in a recruit,” said Bryan Fraser, who is the women’s volleyball coach at the College of the Rockies.

“Her athletic ability and power in her attack is very impressive. She’s passionate about the game and has one of the best work ethics I have come across. What stands out most about her is her pursuit of academic excellence, which is going to take her very far. I am fortunate for the opportunity to work with Rylee next season.”

Bell’s brother, Alex, plays for the La Ronge Ice Wolves.
