Brad Gunter named to Canada West first team all-star squad

G.P. Vanier grad makes elite team for third straight year

Brad Gunter of Courtenay was one of two Thompson Rivers University WolfPack volleyball players chosen as Canada West first team all-stars for the 2015-16 season.

The fifth year outside hitter was named to the Canada West first team all-star for the third straight year.  Gunter became the Canada West and CIS all time kills (1,476) and points (1,710) leader as he finished his university career.  His stats this season saw him second in the league in kills per set (4.52) and kills (384) and led the league in service aces per set (0.41).

Says WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly about Gunter’s selection: “It is nice to see Brad recognized in his fifth and final year. He has had a storied career for TRU volleyball and has been a pleasure to coach.

“Brad picked up his game in the second semester and really had some dominant performances, particularly the UBC weekend. Brad has been our most decorated athlete for TRU at the Canada West and CIS level and will be missed next year.”
