Trent Men’s Volleyball Player Awarded OCAA Honors Christian Zimmer Named OCAA Player of the Week

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014


Trent’s Men’s Volleyball went out on a high note to close the first half of their 2014-15 season on December 3rd. The team defeated the Loyalist Lancers 3-1 to set their record at 5-4 on the season so far. However, more good news was on the way for Excalibur Volleyball. On December 9th team captain Christian Zimmer was named OCAA player of the week after putting up 18 points on 14 kills, two service aces and a pair of blocks in the Loyalist, Excalibur tilt. The honor comes as a result of that and other strong performances for Trent as Zimmer has posted more than 12 points in the three games (all wins) preceding Trent’s victory over Loyalist. Certainly a positive to take into the second half of the season for Zimmer and the rest of the men’s volleyball program!
