Andrea Crow Commits To Waterloo
The 5’11” grade 12 student at Ecole Secondaire de Pain Court, who is an outside hitter, says she chose Waterloo for a mix of athletics and academics.
“Waterloo provides the best opportunity for me to pursue my passions in science,” said Crow in a Waterloo Warriors news release. “During my visit, I fell in love with the chemical engineering program and its buildings, as well as the faculty members and the overall student experience. The women’s volleyball team was also a big reason for committing to the University. The atmosphere of the team and the coaching staff were very welcoming and looked to constantly improve every aspect of my performance.”
Crow currently plays for the South County Bandits U18 volleyball, a program out of Essex County alongside a pair of other Chatham-Kent products, Mattea Deleary and Abby Sluys. Crow’s South County coach Jeff Miller, speaks highly of his hitters value to his own program, and to Waterloo as a recruit.
“Andrea has been a great addition to our team this season,” explained Miller. “She is a powerful and explosive athlete and we are trying to prepare her as much as possible for the next level with the Waterloo Warriors womens volleyball team. Andrea is hard working and dedicated to improving her game each time she steps onto the court. She has been great to coach and a valuable teammate and I wish her the best next year.”
The former Chatham Ballhawks athlete will study in Waterloo’s Faculty of Engineering next season. According to Waterloo head coach Richard Eddy, Crow is a player the school has been watching for a long time, and he is excited to add her skills and character to his team.
“When I first saw Andrea play I knew she had potential,” said Eddy in the Warriors release. “The first thing you appreciate is that she is a strong, confident player with a competitive intensity that is missing from a lot of young athletes. I think these tools will be a big advantage for her at the next level and I’m very excited to have her training in our gym.”
Crow will join the University of Waterloo Warriors next season.
