Pitt Meadows secondary graduate Elizabeth Roemer has accepted a volleyball scholarship to the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, starting in September 2022.
Roemer started playing volleyball at age 12 with the Ridge Meadows Royals, then moved to the Coquitlam Ducks where she has played for the past four years. When Elizabeth was 16, she made Team BC for volleyball, and has played high school volleyball at PMSS since Grade 8.
Elizabeth is also a gifted Lacrosse player who began playing at the age of four. She played on the Team BC Field Lacrosse and also had opportunities to pursue the sport in the U.S. with offers from NCAA schools, but decided to focus on volleyball.
“Lizzie is a tough competitor, who works hard each and every day to be her best. She battles hard, has an amazing attitude, and loves her teammates,” said Coquitlam Ducks coach Bryan Gee. “She always works hard, never complains and always makes those around her better. Liz is a humble and kind person, a great learner, and a versatile athlete.”
Her new coach at UNB, Richard Schick, sees a great athlete who is still getting better at volleyball.
“Lizzie is a multi-sport athlete who’s just starting to understand what she’s capable of doing on the volleyball court,” he said.
“In her relatively short time playing volleyball, she’s shown tremendous and continued improvement, and her versatility will only help her in her continued growth in the game. She’s someone who, on her visit to UNB, made an immediate impression on our group and coaching staff.”
Roemer is looking forward to playing university level volleyball and working towards a degree in Kinesiology.
