The PACWEST is pleased to announce the Week 12 volleyball Athletes of the Week.

Female Volleyball Athlete of the Week
Amanda Matsui – UFV Cascades

The rookie had an outstanding weekend leading her club to a split against the No. 3-ranked team in the nation, the VIU Mariners. On Friday, she smashed 16 kills and added 20 digs as the No. 7-ranked Cascades upset the Mariners in four sets. VIU bounced back to win Saturday’s rematch in four, but Matsui once again had a terrific all-around performance with 15 kills, 11 digs and five aces.

Male Volleyball Athlete of the Week
Eduardo Bida – Camosun Chargers

The Chargers were led by the play of newcomer Eduardo Bida from Brazil who only joined the team recently after his International Student Visa was approved. He’s spent the last couple of weeks getting used to a new ball and the Canadian College style of play and it is fair to say that he has picked things up quickly because he scored a whopping 48 points on offense and picked up 29 digs in the back row. He also passed at a rate over 2.3 on a 3 scale and his dominance was especially evident in the final two sets of each contest.
