MVB takes home Mucho Burrito Athletes of the Week award

Feb. 27, 2019 - We couldn't single any of these boys out after a historic season. Congrats to Kodiaks men's volleyball on earning the Mucho Burrito Athletes of the Week award after winning the first ACAC medal in program history.

The team wrapped up the best season in program history with an ACAC silver medal on Saturday. The Kodiaks earned a spot in the conference championship game against the Keyano Huskies, but lost in three sets to cap off the tournament hosted by NAIT in Edmonton. This marks the first time the Kodiaks have ever earned an ACAC medal, and their first appearance in an ACAC final. 

The Kodiaks placed three players on the tournament all-star team, including Carter Hansen (fourth year, General Studies, Magrath), Matt Primrose (third year, General Studies, Lethbridge) and Dax Whitehead (fifth year, General Studies, Moose Jaw, Sask.). 

It was a historic season for the Kodiaks as the team set a new record for wins (22), was ranked in the CCAA top three for the first time ever.
