Taylor Pischke of the University of Manitoba and her women’s beach volleyball teammate Melissa Humana-Parades of York University in Toronto will represent Canada in the women’s division at the 2012 FISU Beach Volleyball World Championships Sept. 12-16 in Maceio, Brazil.

The men’s team is Sam Pedlow and Grant O’Gorman of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont.

Pischke, a Winnipeg native, earned the world championship berth with Humana-Parades last weekend at Volleyball Canada’s Identification and Selection Camp at Volleyball Canada’s new Beach High Performance Facility (HPF) at Downsview Park in Toronto.

There were 10 women’s teams and seven men’s teams competing for the berths in a tournament format. In the women’s final, Pischke and Humana-Parades beat Alexandra Hudson of the University of Toronto and Kayla Ng of Waterloo 21-11, 21-15.

Pischke is a member of the U of M Bisons women’s indoor volleyball team.
