Brad Gunter earns Canada West star

TRU Wolfpack men's volleyball team now ranked 7th in CIS

For the second week in a row, a member of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack has been chosen as a Canada West Three Star.

Courtenay’s Brad Gunter (3rd year, outside hitter) of the WolfPack men’s volleyball team was named a male second star for the week ending Nov. 24.

Gunter has been a dominant force in Canada West this entire season and was the team’s kills leader this past weekend when the WolfPack swept the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. He had 44 kills in 79 chances with 17, digs, four service aces, a solo block and six block assists.

Meanwhile, a sweep of the Saskatchewan Huskies last weekend in the Canada West has propelled the WolfPack up the national rankings.

The CIS has released their weekly top 10 and the WolfPack have moved from 10th spot to seventh.

TRU closes out the pre-Christmas portion of their Canada West season this weekend (Nov. 29-30) with matches in Calgary against the Mount Royal University Cougars.
