Brad Gunter has been nominated for a Thompson Rivers University WolfPack Division of Athletics and Recreation 2014-15 major award.

Gunter, a G.P. Vanier grad who just completed his fourth season with the men’s volleyball team, is nominated in the TRU Sports Task Force Athletes of the Year category. The award is based on outstanding performance on the field or court.

In addition, the Newcomer of the Year, Community Award and Directors Award will be announced at the awards banquet, which will be held at the TRU Campus Activity Centre’s Grand Hall in Kamloops on Thursday, April 2.

Meanwhile, Gunter is one of three members of the TRU WolfPack named as finalists for the 2014 Kamloops Sports Council Awards.

Gunter and basketball head coach Scott Clark were two of three finalists named by the Sports Council Awards committee.

Gunter was the Canada West and CIS Player of the Year, a first team all-star, first team All-Canadian and played for Canada’s Senior Men’s  “B” Team in 2014.  He was recently named the Sport BC University Athlete of the Year.

Clark was chosen on behalf of his program—the WolfPack men’s basketball team. In 2014, Clark led them to their first-ever Canada West playoff appearance.

The other nominee for the University Athlete/Team/Coach of the year is football player Jacob Bigham who attends University in Idaho.

The winners will be announced April 11 in conjunction with the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame inductions for 2014.
