“I have always been to the TRU camps that they have hosted in Jaffrey, BC," said Oestreich. "I always wanted to be a part of the program from age six. I love the campus and the area.”

The 6' outside-hitter is set to graduate from Mount Baker Secondary School next June. She is currently into her second summer playing with Team BC volleyball.

Oestreich feels her strengths as a player are her aggressiveness and competitiveness. She believes that the adjustment going from high school to university will be made easier due to the size of Kamloops and Thompson Rivers.

“The girls were very welcoming and made me feel right at home. They push you but they never make you feel that you aren’t as good as they are.”
