2017 CCAA Women’s Volleyball All-Canadians

The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association is proud to announce the 2017 CCAA Women’s Volleyball All-Canadians.

The student-athletes, who are selected by their conference based on performance and contribution to the sport and their team, were honoured at a banquet during the 2017 CCAA Women’s Volleyball National Championship at Camosun College in Victoria, BC.

Here are the 2017 CCAA Women’s Volleyball All-Canadians:

   

Megan Rosenlund


Sarah Hughes

 

VIU Mariners

 

Capilano Blues

In her fifth and final season, the Mariners captain led her team to a first-place finish in the PACWEST with a 19-5 record. The PACWEST Player of the Year led the conference in total kills with 277. Although she is counted on for offence, the former libero hasn’t forgotten her roots and is strong defensively as well. Rosenlund’s smile and infectious love for the game make her a perfect role model in the community and a great ambassador for the Mariners.

 

The fifth-year setter led the Blues to a 17-7 record and third-place finish in the competitive PACWEST. Hughes was among the conference leaders in aces and blocks, and averaged 2.26 digs per set – showcasing a strong all-around game. As team captain, Hughes’ leadership and passion carried the team day-in and day-out. Her ability to spread the offence with her passing powered the offence on the court, keeping the opposition guessing.


   

Samantha Zacharias


Emily Groenenboom


 

Briercrest Clippers

 

GPRC Wolves

The three-time All-Canadian led the CCAA with 347 kills, 99 service aces and 459.5 overall points. This season, Zacharias became only the third Women’s Volleyball player in ACAC history to reach 1,000 kills. The fourth-year outside hitter led the Clippers to a best-ever 20-4 record and second-place finish in the ACAC’s tough South Division. Zacharias, the ACAC Player of the Year, is a leader at Briercrest with her outstanding work ethic and determination.

 

Groenenboom led the Wolves to a 19-5 record and second-place finish in the ACAC North Division. The third-year outside hitter was among the conference leaders in kills, hitting percentage and service aces. Groenenboom is not only an extremely talented athlete, she also possesses an excellent work ethic, leadership skills, and a team-first mentality that make her a natural leader and an exceptional role model for her Wolves teammates.


   

Allison Marshall


Jordan Koslowski


 

Durham Lords

 

Niagara Knights

The OCAA Player of the Year led the Lords to a perfect 18-0 record and first-place finish in the OCAA East Division. She also led Durham to tournament titles at the Sheridan Invitational and Adidas Cup. The fifth-year student-athlete has transitioned into a great left-side attacker after playing most of her career as a middle. Marshall was among the league leaders in kills, points per set, hitting percentage and service aces.

 

In her sophomore season, Koslowski became one of the most dynamic outside attackers in the OCAA, leading Niagara to a 15-3 record and second-place finish in the OCAA West Division. She captured the division scoring title with 203 kills, 46 service aces, and 18 stuffed blocks for an average of 4.2 points per set. Koslowski was equally as sharp in the passing game with 106 digs. With a relentless work ethic, she has quickly matured into a team leader.


   

Noémie Gagné


Maude Babin


 

Élans de Garneau

 

Lynx d’Édouard-Montpetit

Gagné led the Élans to a 15-3 record and first-place finish in the conference. The RSEQ Player of the Year also led Garneau to a championship at the Coupe de l’Est, where she was named a tournament All-Star. In her second year with the Élans, Gagné continued to develop her passing skills as a setter. Her understanding of the game also improved significantly this season as she flourished into the team’s quarterback.

 

Babin, who was first in the RSEQ with 267 kills and 4.59 points per set, led Édouard-Montpetit to an 11-7 record and tie for second place in the conference. The Lynx were crowned champions at the Coupe de Montreal, where Babin was named Player of the Match three times. The third-year attacker is known for her striking force. Babin, who is also a referee, has developed into an exemplary leader and a great role model for rookies.


   

Christina Day


Rachel McDougall


 

MSVU Mystics

 

Mount Allison Mounties

In her fifth and final year, the ACAA Player of the Year led the Mystics to a 19-2 record and first-place finish in the conference. Day, a two-time CCAA All-Canadian, ranked among the conference Top 5 in points per set, kills per set and hitting percentage. She is a complete player with the skill set to receive, dig, serve and hit. One of the most dynamic hitters in the ACAA, Day has great court sense and is a true competitor.

 

The Mount Allison freshman was named the ACAA Rookie of the Year, in leading the Mounties to a 12-9 record. McDougall led the conference with 257 kills, 296 points and a .257 hitting percentage. She is a great talent with a strong work ethic and a determination to succeed. McDougall is committed to her development and has quickly earned the respect of her teammates and those around the league.
