Standing at 6’1″and possessing an array of skills both on offense and defense, outside hitter Erika Morris is one of the most sought after recruits in BC. Recently, the 17 year old Prince George native announced that she will attend Camosun and play volleyball for the Chargers following her graduation from PG Secondary this spring.
Having been named to The Province’s Super 15 Female Senior’s Class of 2012, as voted on by the head coaches of BC’s CIS volleyball programs, Erika received offers from several institutions but chose Camosun for its academic programming and the opportunity to play for Chargers Head Coach Chris Dahl who she has worked with in the past (initially at a camp in Prince George several years ago and most recently with Team BC and the NTCC program this past summer).
“He’s from Prince George and I worked with him last summer,” said Morris in an interview with the Prince George Citizen. “He’s just a really honest good guy and really organized and a really good coach. I agree with lots of his techniques and philosophies.”
Last summer, Erika served double duty with both the 17U Western Canada Summer Games team winning Gold in Kamloops and the 18U National Team Challenge Cup program winning Gold in Winnipeg with current Camosun Chargers student-athletes Kelsey Clarke and Olivia Redden who both hail from Delta.
“Erika’s commitment to the Chargers is another significant step in the growth of our program,” said Chargers Head Coach Chris Dahl. “I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work with Erika over the years … she is a wonderful person and a determined athlete. We look forward to advancing her game with the Camosun program.”
Tthe Chargers volleyball teams have a bye this weekend and return to PACWEST action on February 3-4 as they face off against Douglas College in New Westminster.
