Spencer Reed and Colin Carson are not only two of the leaders on the WolfPack men’s volleyball team, but they do a pretty fine job of blogging their activities. Both are fourth year players from Prince George, BC.
As with Laura Smylie’s soccer blog, we too, apologize for not writing sooner. Academics and athletics have fully engulfed our lives which does not leave much time for other happenings.
Two weeks ago, our team hosted the biggest junior volleyball tournament in western Canada. In total, 68 teams participated. The development of this sport in our province has increased drastically since our generation went through the high school and club volleyball systems. It is so great to see so many people getting involved. We had a few matches that weekend and beat both Lethbridge College and Medicine Hat College
Last weekend we wrapped up our preseason schedule at Thunderball in Vancouver. UBC hosts this tournament each year and it was an honour to be invited this year. Played a lot of volleyball and went 3 – 1 on the weekend overall, winning the tournament final over UBC in an exciting 5 set finale. A lot of the guys on our team have buddies on UBC and so it was great to see them. We ended up beating the host T-Birds, Manitoba and Guelph.
We couldn’t decide who the shoutout should go to this blog so we have a few. To all the families of our teammates that brought the team goodies in Vancouver, thank you. To the men’s and women’s soccer teams – your seasons were outstanding and we wish you the best of luck in playoffs. Also want to congratulate Stu Richey for finally winning a game in FIFA ’12 on Playstation 3.
The regular season starts this weekend for us so hope to see you all at the TCC Friday night. 6:00 for the women and 7:45 for the men.
Until next time,
Spenny and CC
