Pilots Women's Volleyball Add Left Side Tyra Peters from New Bothwell, Manitoba
New Bothwell, Manitoba native, Tyra Peters, signed her letter of intent this past week to play volleyball as a Pilot at Providence University College in fall 2021.
"I am excited to join the volleyball team at Providence and continue playing the sport I love," said Tyra. "I'm looking forward to a great experience furthering my education, growing in my faith and making new friends on the team while competing at a high level."
Peters comes to Providence having played in the Junior Pilots Volleyball program the past six years and has been a two time gold medalist at club nationals. She was school athlete of the year in grade 8 & 11 as well as a bronze medalist at beach provincials.
Peters is a 5'7" Left Side known for her passing, defense and athletic ability with a creative offensive mind. She will be graduating from Steinbach Regional Secondary School this spring.
Head Coach Kyle Guenther shared his excitement on his newest recruit by saying, "I am really looking forward to having Tyra join our team in fall. She is a natural athlete with a lot of skill. Tyra is a solid passer and defender. She uses her quickness in the backrow really well. Tyra also jumps really well and is a threat on offense. I’m excited to get the opportunity to work with her after watching her in our club program for the last 6 years."
Welcome to the Pilot family Tyra!
