TRU WolfPack men’s volleyball team cracks CIS top 10 rankings

Courtenay's Brad Gunter leads Canada West in points per game

For the first time this season , the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack have made the top 10 of the CIS national rankings in men’s volleyball.

The WolfPack are in the rankings this week in the number 10 position. It marks the eighth year in the nine year tenure of Pat Hennelly as head coach at TRU that the Kamloops team has been recognized.

“It shows that people recognize our achievements of the last week,” Hennelly says, referring to the team’s split with the University of Alberta Golden Bears in Edmonton. “We won once and were on the verge of winning two. No team has gone into Edmonton and swept the Bears since 2000.   Obviously, it was about to be a monumental thing. It was great for us to get a win against a tough team on the road.  I think the guys will appreciate it and it will add to their confidence.”

This is the first time in 2013-14 that any WolfPack squad has been recognized in the CIS national rankings.

Courtenay’s Brad Gunter (3rd year, outside hitter) leads the Canada West in points (5.59 per game), is second in kills 5.12 per game) and 10th in digs (2.06 per game).

Here is the CIS top 10 for men’s volleyball: 1. McMaster (6-0), 2. Trinity Western (7-1), 3. Alberta (5-3), 4. UBC (5-3), 5. Brandon (4-4), 6. UNB (5-2), 7. Saskatchewan (3-5), 8. Dalhousie (6-1), 9. Manitoba (4-4), 10. Thompson Rivers (4-4).
