The UNB Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Connor McConnell, from the men’s volleyball team.

McConnell led the Reds in a pair of weekend victories over the Dalhousie Tigers as UNB evened their RSEQ record at 2-2.

He recorded 28 total kills while hitting an impressive .431, and led both teams in both matches in total points scored.

In Friday’s straight-sets victory, McConnell was named Player of the Game.

Along with his impressive hitting numbers, the 4th year outside hitter also recorded digs, blocks and assists.

“Connor’s performance this past weekend is a result of his continued growth,” said Reds head coach Dan McMorran. “He has been working hard in all aspects of his game and is proving he’s a threat both offensively and defensively.”

McConnell now ranks 5th in the country in points per set, and 6th in U SPORTS in kills per set.

McConnell and his Reds teammates are now preparing to host Montreal for a two-match series, on November 22nd and 23rd.
