Paige McDonald never dreamed five years ago that she would be playing on a Deaf and Hard of Hearing Volleyball Team, never mind the Team Canada Deaf Women's Volleyball Team in France!  But she did and her team won the Gold Medal in Montepellier France in May 19-21, 2018 for the Montepellier 80th Celebration of Deaf Sports International Competition.  Paige was the only Manitoban on the team playing with women from BC and all the way across Canada to Nova Scotia.  It was a whirlwind weekend with many challenges and great memories to talk about for many years to come.  

 

Here is Paige's account of her trip:
