Evelyn Kampen Named Week 10 Athlete of the Week

Perfection is difficult to achieve. For the Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) women’s volleyball team, though, achieving perfection is easier when you have a left side as talented as Evelyn Kampen. Kampen had an impressive Week 10, highlighted by two matches against the University of Winnipeg College Wesmen – a matchup voted by the conference fans to be the Matchup of the Month.

In her Saturday outing, she had 17 kills, 12 digs, and five blocks. On Sunday, she improved – recording 20 kills, seven digs, and two blocks. CMU won both the matches in straight sets, ending the week a perfect 7-0.

These remarkable stats are nothing new for Kampen, a two-time Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference women’s volleyball MVP and a player who spent two years playing in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) with Trinity Western.

Kampen attended high school at River East Collegiate and is working towards a degree in communications.
