By the standards of past seasons, this has been the most competitive yet for the four-time champion Red River College men’s volleyball team.
At the end of Week 11 though, they finally reclaimed the spot they’ve owned for so long – the top in the conference. This was mostly thanks to two outstanding matches from second-year middle Dave Glass. In a Saturday matchup with then-top team University of Saint-Boniface, Glass had 12 kills and three errors on 20 attempts. He followed that up with another strong match against last year’s finalists, Canadian Mennonite University, where he had 11 kills and three errors on 18 attempts. Glass had nine stuff blocks combined in the two Week 11 matches as his team moved to 7-1 on the year.
Dave continues to improve the speed of his attack and decision making, which definitely helped earned us wins,” said Dan Gilbert, Red River men’s volleyball coach. “Dave was a key contributor to our success on the second night against University of Saint-Boniface, leading the team in kills. His presence at the net has also been evident in his blocking, as he has led our team in stuff blocks in these last two matches.”
Glass is studying business administration at Red River and attended high school at Shaftesbury.
