KAMLOOPS — A big crowd brought out the best in the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack men’s volleyball team on Friday, Oct. 12.  Playing before about 1,000 fans at the Tournamen Capital Centre, the WolfPack won an exhibition match with the Lethbridge Community College Kodiacs of the Alberta College Athletic Conference.  The score was 3-0 (25-20, 25-12, 27-25).

TRU was led by Brad Gunter.  The second year outside hitter from Courtenay had 13 kills in 23 chances with a service ace, nine digs and two block assists. Casey Knight (3rd year, outside hitter, Salt Spring Island) had eight kills in 13 chances. Jacob Tricarico (4th year, middle, Huntington, Beach, CA) had three service aces.

“I thought we were pretty steady tonight,” said WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly. “We were pretty steady tonight without any real panic. They pushed us in both the first and the third sets. I thought Graham (Stoliker, 2nd year, setter, Surrey)  did a good job running the offence, getting kills out of the middle.” Stoliker was inserted into the setter position due to an injury to Colin Carson (4th year, Prince George). He had 35 assists and eight digs along with four block assists.

The WolfPack are off to UBC this weekend for the Thunderball tournament before opening their CIS and home regular season Oct. 26 at the TCC aganst the UBCO Heat.
