Brad Gunter leads WolfPack past Spartans

TRU men's volleyball team in pre-season Canada West exhibition action

It was a happy homecoming for Matt Krueger. The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack men’s volleyball player returned to his high school and helped lead his team to a straight-set victory over the Trinity Western University Spartans in exhibition action on Sept. 19.


The scores at the Mennonite Educational Institute in Abbotsford were 25-21, 25-21, 25-14. “It was a good way to finish the tour with a solid defensive effort,” said WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly.

TRU was led by fourth-year outside hitter Brad Gunter of Courtenay with 19 kills.  Krueger moved from his normal libero position to left side. He hit .400 with one block.


“It was good to see Matt hit in the gym where he won three provincial titles as an outside hitter,” Hennelly added. Jordan Foot (2nd year, middle, Prince George) had nine kills and five blocks for TRU.

Brandon Hewwing (4th year, outside hitter, Calgary) finished with six kills and two blocks while Graham Stoliker (4th year, setter, Surrey) had 42 assists and six digs.

The WolfPack scrimmaged at UBC on Sept. 20 before returning home. They will hit the road for a tournament in Mount Royal this weekend (Sept. 26-27).

Their only home pre-season matches will come Oct. 3-4 at the Tournament Capital Centre against the University of Windsor.

TRU opens the 2014-15 Canada West regular season on the road Oct.  10 against those same Trinity Western Spartans. Their first home matches of the season are Oct. 24-25 against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.
