Comox Valley athletes boost VIU Mariners

Nanaimo-based school earns Pacwest Aggregate Championship, Founders Cup

That championship season continues for the Vancouver Island University Mariners and their Comox Valley athletes.

Mariners teams had one of their most successful seasons ever and for their efforts have earned both the Pacwest’s Aggregate Championship Trophy and the Founders Cup.

The Aggregate Championship goes to the school with the most accumulated points by each of its teams. The Founders Cup goes to the school with the best improvement in aggregate points from the previous season.

This is the seventh consecutive season the Ms have earned the Aggregate award as they competed in nine sports and amassed 71 points.

The VIU women’s volleyball team, with first year libero Mychaela Roelants (Comox-Highland), won the Pacwest gold medal and finished sixth at the CCAA national championships.

The men’s volleyball team, with fifth year middle/left side Rylan Brouwer (Courtenay-G.P. Vanier), won Pacwest bronze.


The men’s basketball team, with first-year guard Morgan Proctor (Courtenay-Mark Isfeld) redshirting, won the Pacwest championship and earned silver at the CCAA national championships.
