The fourth-year outside hitter from Courtenay was named the TRU Bookstore/MacDonalds “Leader of the Pack” player of the match on Nov. 14 at the Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops when the Wesmen snapped TRU’s three-match winning streak with a straight set (25-20, 25-21, 25-22) win.

The CIS Player of the Year had 18 kills in 35 swings with three digs. On Nov. 15, Gunter had 24 kills in 44 chances with three digs and three block assists as the ‘Pack knocked off the Wesmen 3-1 (25-22, 25-22, 18-25, 25-15) to bring their season record to 4-8.

The WolfPack hit the road for Manitoba this week (Nov. 21-22) to play the Bisons before returning home to conclude the pre-Christmas portion of their season against first-place Alberta Golden Bears (Nov. 28-29) at the Tournament Capital Centre.
