March 5, 2019 - February is a crucial month on the ACAC calendar for many sports including volleyball and basketball, and the Kodiaks are recognizing a pair of athletes that stepped up and helped their team when it mattered most.
Juhee Anderson (WBB) and Carter Hansen (MVB) capped off monster seasons for their respective teams, and also delivered great performances once the lights got brighter in the ACAC postseason. For that, they have been named the February Kodiaks Athletes of the Month, sponsored by Moxie's and Italian Table.
Each athlete will receive a $40 certificate to either Moxie's or Italian Table. Congrats Juhee and Carter!
Juhee Anderson (WBB)
Leading her team back to the ACAC postseason after a one year absence, Anderson’s strong two way play helped the Kodiaks secure third place in the tough ACAC south division. The first-year Kodiak was an offensive force all season and took her game to a new level in February, finishing the year with an average of 15 points per game, ranking her seventh in the conference.
Anderson was also great at distributing the ball and making opportunities for her teammates, as she finished eighth in the conference with 69 assists. Her great season was recognized at the 2019 ACAC championships award banquet, where she was named to the ACAC first all-conference team.
Carter Hansen (MVB)
The Kodiaks men’s volleyball program wrapped up a historic season in February, one that included a magical run to the ACAC finals. At the centre of the run was fourth-year Kodiak and Magrath High alum Carter Hansen.
Hansen led the team with 366 kills during the regular season, placing him second in the conference. His high octane performance on the court helped lead the Kodiaks to a 22-2 record and first place in the south division.
He then elevated his play in the postseason, earning an ACAC championships all-star nod while helping the Kodiaks earn their first ever ACAC postseason medal.
