Seven members of Capilano University’s men’s and women’s volleyball teams took home PacWest awards this season, including Justin Yee who was named the league’s rookie of the year.
Yee, a setter from Burnaby’s Moscrop secondary who was turned into a power hitter in his first year at Capilano, finished seventh in the league in digs, eighth in total offence, 10th in kills, and 10th in aces.
Setter Simon Friesen earned a spot on the first all-star team while libero Jonathan Lee joined Yee on the all-rookie team.
On the women’s side Capilano was rewarded for a strong season with both setter Sarah Hughes and right-side hitter Kira Sutcliffe earning first-team all-star status. First-year left-side Tyneille Neufeld earned second all-star status while fellow rookie Anika Kolybaba was named to the all-rookie team.
Both Blues teams are competing in the PacWest provincial championships this weekend at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo.
