Hailing from Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia, Stubeda Plays for the Bedford Blizzard Volleyball Club. A two-time Volleyball Nova Scotia bronze medallist, the outside hitter is also a three-time team MVP. Stubeda has also represented Nova Scotia for two seasons and was a member of the Team Nova Scotia that finished fourth at the Canada Cup in 2023.

“Becoming a Tiger will allow me to pursue my academic goals while playing volleyball at a high level,” says Stubeda. “I am beyond excited to begin this journey with the amazing teammates and coaching staff at Dalhousie.”

She plays with an undeniably competitive presence, has a tremendous work ethic, and excels in the classroom. Sophia brings many technical skills on both sides of the ball that will translate well to the U SPORTS level.”
