Carly Gunter leads the way for WolfPack women

First-year player from Courtenay earns praise from her volleyball coach

Carly Gunter was named the TRU Bookstore/McDonalds “Leader of the Pack” Player of the match for the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s volleyball team on Nov. 15 when they defeated the visiting University of Winnipeg Wesmen 3-2 at the Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops.

The scores in the Canada West tilt were 25-20, 25-19, 24-26, 20-25, 15-11. “As a first-year player she hasn’t seen much floor time,” said TRU head coach Chad Grimm of the outside hitter from Courtenay.

“She brought us some stability. She didn’t do anything spectacular but she got her serve in and a couple of digs. She was talking and directing traffic in in the back row. For a first-year player, she brought a calming stability to the group when we were up and down.”

The WolfPack, now 6-6 on the season, hit the road this weekend for Manitoba where they will play the Bisons (Nov. 21-22). They return home for the final weekend before the Christmas break (Nov. 28-29) to host the Alberta Pandas.
