Sydney Playing for the Granada National Team

Sydney Ashton, Calhoun junior and Girls’ Varsity Volleyball athlete, participated in the ECVA Senior Championships as part of the Grenada National Women's Volleyball team. The championship tournament took place in Antigua & Barbuda in August.

Sydney joined the national squad after an opportunity arose to practice with the team on a visit to Grenada two years ago. Seeing her well-known skill and grit during these practices, coach Raphael Braithwaite invited Sydney to join the team for this prestigious event.

At the ECVA Senior Championships, Sydney finished the tournament ranked as the 7th best receiver, 6th best scorer, and 6th best spiker in the tournament!

Congrats, Sydney! Cougar Nation is proud of you!
