CALGARY – Luis Lange has been selected as the Under Armour & Players Bench Athlete of the Week. This time for the week of March 12-19, 2019.
The men's volleyball team had a historic week at the school's first-ever U SPORTS National Championship in Quebec City. They were the only team in the tournament that had never attended in previous years. The Cougars finished in sixth place and had a break out performance from rookie Luis Lange.
Lange started the week being placed on the U SPORTS all-rookie team. He proved all weekend that he was well deserving of this honour by being MRU's most consistent player. Throughout the tournament, Lange provided a spark with his passion and efficient attacking. Heads were turning as thousands of Quebec City fans saw him play for the first time. His fiery play quickly made him a fan favourite.
This is an exciting time for the Cougars as they finish their season with a National Championship appearance and a strong performance from Lange. This shows a promising future for the Cougars going into the 2019-2020 campaign.
