Among those named to the U Sports All-Canadian teams were McMaster’s Andrew Richards and Brandon Koppers.

Richards, who was named the OUA West Player of the Year, was named to the First Team All-Canadians at the awards breakfast which celebrated the national honourees ahead of the Telus 2018 U Sports Men’s Volleyball Championships. Fellow teammate, Koppers was named to the Second Team All-Canadians.

This was the first time for both players to be names to the All-Canadians.

While the Marauders picked up the two All-Canadian nods, the honours were dominated by the Canada West conference who swept the major awards. Trinity Western setter Adam Schriemer was named Player of the Year, Saskatchewan outside hitter Dylan Mortensen picked up the Rookie of the Year and the Winnipeg duo of Larry McKay and Logan Brennan took home Coach of the year and the Dale Iwanoczko Award respectively.

The Telus 2018 U Sports Men’s Volleyball Championship will get underway on Friday March 16 with four quarter final matches starting at 1:00 pm at McMaster’s Burridge Gym.
