The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack men’s volleyball team split a pair of Canada West exhibition matches in the Kootenays. Playing in Fernie on Sept. 29, the ‘Pack fell 3-0 to the University of Calgary Dinos. The scores were 25-20,27-25,25-20.

 

“Calgary played well and didn’t make a lot of mistakes,” said WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly. “They had a balanced attack and some strong serving.”

The WolfPack were led by Courtenay’s Brad Gunter (first year, outside hitter) with 12 kills, four aces and three stuffed blocks.

Hennelly added there was a good crowd on hand at the Fernie Secondary gym for the match.

The two teams then moved on to Cranbrook for a Sept. 30 match-up at the College of the Rockies, where before another big crowd the ‘Pack downed the Dinos in three straight sets. The scores were 25-21,27-25,25-18.

The match capped a day where TRU players conducted three clinics in the Kootenays. “All of them were well attended and had high energy,” Hennelly stated.

 

Next up for TRU is a pair of matches against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, Oct. 14 and 15. TRU opens the 2011 CIS regular season Oct. 28 at the TCC against the University of Calgary.
