Durham Rebels Volleyball is proud to update you on class of 2015 alumna, Braedyn Tutton. Braedyn is heading into her 4th year as a middle blocker with Eastern Tennessee State University. The ETSU Buccaneers are an NCAA division 1 team competing in the Southern Conference.
“I have loved every minute of the experience that comes with playing Division 1 volleyball”, said the former Sinclair Celtic in a recent chat. “This past year we won our conference and I got the chance to play in my first ever NCAA tournament where we played one of the number one teams in the entire NCAA so that is something I’ll never forget!”
We’re proud to feature class of 2016 alumna, Avery Pottle. Avery is going into her third year playing middle blocker with Thompson Rivers University in beautiful Kamploops, British Columbia where she is studying Honours Biology. She plans to attends medical school to become an obstetrician and as a two-time academic All Canadian, this student-athlete will no doubt achieve her goal.
“My time with Durham Rebels helped me to understand the importance of a strong work ethic, and committing 100% to everything I do. I also had great mentors like 2009 Rebel alumna Katie Fitzgerald who set an example for me of the kind of player I want to be.” Avery joined the club back in 2011 as a 13U player. She says she developed strong bonds with her teammates over the years, many of whom she still remains in close contact.
We are very proud of this former Rebel and watching her excel in the classroom and on the court is something we want for all of our athletes. Way to go, Avery — keep killin’ it!
