Dobbert Named Canada West second MVB all-star

  Posted on: February 27, 2018

Tim Dobbert’s first season in Canada West men’s volleyball has been honored by the league’s coaches.

The 6-10 outside hitter from Aichelberg, Germany was honored by being named to the Canada West second all-star team.

Dobbert was the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack’s leading offensive weapon for most of the season since transferring this past summer from Brigham Young University (NCAA Div I).

Dobbert led the Canada West in kills per set (4.13), was fourth in overall kills (322) and finished fifth in hitting percent (.295).   He suited up for 21 matches and played 78 sets, garnering 105 digs, 22 service aces, nine solo blocks and 43 block assists.   The Masters of Business student led the WolfPack in scoring in every match he played during the regular season.

WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly had this to say about Dobbert’s second team selection, “He showed consistency throughout the year even when we struggled as a team. He not only got kills but he kept a high hitting percentage which is a sign how well a guy is doing. He was among the leader for kills, kills per set and hitting proficiency.  It is tough as an outside hitter when you are getting a lot of different balls. A lot of them are off quick plays and digs that are not perfect situations. He still manages to not make errors and get kills. He is deserved of that award and was certainly a key addition to our team this year.”
