Incoming recruit Lange earns spot on Junior National Team

CALGARY - The Cougars men's volleyball team's latest recruit, Luis Lange, has been chosen to play with Canada's 2018 Junior National Team.

The team will attend the NORCECA U21 Continental Championship in Havana, Cuba from August 25 to September 2, 2018. Lange, a middle, will return to Calgary to play with the Cougars following his time with the junior national team.

"I feel super excited to be playing and representing Canada along with the best players in my age, to be learning more and more everyday about the game from great and experienced coaches," said Lange. "My expectations are to get better every day, and to train hard to compete against other top nations in the sport."
 
Cougars head coach Shawn Sky is equally pleased at the opportunity that Lange has to play for Team Canada.
 
"We are incredibly happy and proud of Luis," said Sky. "It's always an honour to represent your country. He's come a long way in the last two years. It's a tremendous accomplishment & opportunity. I know Luis has the work ethic and character to make the most of this. He has an exciting & challenging summer ahead. NORCECAs in Cuba in early September is going to be a great experience."
 
The Canada West volleyball schedule is set to be released on June 20.
