WINNIPEG, MB., November 10, 2017 – The Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference announced Friday that Anika Gray from the Red River College Rebels and Kniel Sullera from the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers have been named Athletes of the Week.
Anika Gray led the Rebels in a thrilling 3 sets to 2 victory over the CMU blazers this past Saturday. She led the team with 7 service aces, passing average of 2.0, 23 digs and a kill efficiency rating of .273.
As co-captain of the team, Anika has taken on a leadership role and has led by example by starting the season with this outstanding performance. The above stats are an indication of Anika’s well-rounded game, which allows her to be a dynamic player in all 6 rotations.
Her athleticism also allows her the ability to play multiple positions; leading into the season, she has played left side, right side and setter; a challenge that she has readily accepted and succeeded with.
