RRC Volleyball Players Ashley Goodwin and Josh Goosen named MCAC MVP’s

February 22, 2019

Today, RRC volleyball players Ashley Goodwin and Josh Goosen were named MCAC MVP’s in their respective leagues.

Goodwin, a second year left side hitter from Winnipeg (Miles Mac Collegiate), had another excellent season with the Rebels leading the team in kills (139), aces (44), blocks (82) and digs (172). At 6’2″ Goodwin was a huge presence at the net and true leader on the court. She was named MCAC co-mvp along with CMU Blazer Jana Klassen.

Coach Dan McGregor ” Ashley has been an important piece of the success that we have had in our program over the past 2 seasons. She leads by example by bringing a competitive intensity to both practices and games. She is continually looking at ways to enhance her skills to be a well-rounded player that can contribute in all facets of the game. Based on her excellent passing, defense and hitting ability Ashley has made a successful transition to playing on the left side, moving from middle where she has played most of her career.”

This is the second year in a row Goodwin has been recognized by the MCAC, last year being named All-Conference. The outdoor power equipment tech. student hopes to lead the Rebels to a MCAC championships this weekend at Providence University College, first with a semi final win over the USB Rouges, Saturday February 23rd at 11am.

Josh Goosen, the 6’4″ outside hitter from MBCI was named the MCAC Men’s most volleyball player of the year. Goosen, a second year creative communications student was the most dominant offensive player in the league this season, leading with a whopping 293 kills. The UofM Bisons transfer was named MCAC athlete of the week in early February after connecting on 56 kills with a .384 hitting efficiency in back-to-back 3-0 sweeps over the ACC Cougars.

Coach Lindsay Habib ” Josh is an exceptional athlete and a first class person. He has a very rare ability to smile, laugh and enjoy himself on the court while still being intense, focused, and perform at a high level. Josh led the league in kills by a wide margin this year and led the Rebels in every offensive category for hitters. Despite missing the playoffs Josh was named the league MVP, which is a testament to how dominant of a player he is. We wish Josh all the best as he graduates later this year.” 

Goosen will be graduating from Cre-Com this year after two spectacular seasons with the Rebels including an all-conference award, player of the week award, league MVP and a playoff appearance.
