Riley de Wit ASDC-Central November Athlete of the Month

Red Deer’s Riley de Wit has had plenty of success on the volleyball court this year.

De Wit, a grade 12 student at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School helped the Raiders win back-to-back Alberta Schools Athletic Association 4A Provincial Championships.

The 17-year-old was a co-captain this year for the Raiders senior girls team, which was top-ranked in the province all season.

She was also a member of Team Alberta (17U) and captured a Bronze medal at Volleyball Canada’s inaugural Canada Cup this summer in Richmond, B.C. De Wit plays club volleyball for the Central Alberta Queens Volleyball Club.

Her strong performances on the court recently helped her earn the Alberta Sport Development Centre- Central Athlete Of the Month for November.
