2018 CCAA Women's Volleyball All-Canadians

The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association is proud to announce the 2018 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 2018 CCAA Women’s Volleyball National Championship, hosted by GPRC in Grande Prairie, AB.

Here are the 2018 CCAA Women’s Volleyball All-Canadians:

Mikayla Wagner

 

Vania Oliveira

 

VIU Mariners

 

Douglas Royals

Wagner led the Mariners to a second-place finish in the PACWEST with an 18-6 record. The fourth-year right side has been a consistent offensive threat and the backbone of VIU’s strong offence all season. Wagner’s ability to end rallies makes her one of the best right-side hitters in the country. She balances athletics with her high academic standards and is a constant team player who has developed into a great leader.

 

The PACWEST Player of the Year led the Royals to a 21-3 record and first overall finish in the conference. Oliveira was fourth in the PACWEST with 3.14 kills per set and second in hitting percentage. The second-year right side is an active member of the Royals and International student community on campus. Oliveira is a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and has become an inspiration to her home community.



Sam Zacharias

 

Rae Sigurdson

 

Briercrest Clippers

 

Lakeland Rustlers

Zacharias earned her fourth straight ACAC Player of the Year honours in leading the Clippers to a 23-1 record and first-place finish in the ACAC South Division. The fifth-year outside hitter led the conference with 4.3 kills per set and was also first in service aces. Zacharias set a new ACAC record with 1,391 career kills. She is a special player with amazing consistency to go along with her competitive fire and incredible all-around skill set.

 

The fourth-year setter led the Rustlers to a 23-1 record and first-place finish in the ACAC North Division. Sigurdson, who led the conference with 9.59 assists per set, is a fierce competitor who has learned how to control her emotions and still demand performance from her teammates. Sigurdson has coached the Rustlers U15 girls club team the past two seasons. She is a three-time CCAA Academic All-Canadian and National Scholar recipient.


Sara Piana Yafu

 

Breanna Golding

 

Loyalist Lancers

 

Humber Hawks

The OCAA Player of the Year led Loyalist to a 16-2 record and first-place finish in the OCAA East Division. Yafu, a third-year outside hitter, led the conference with 4.78 kills per set and 5.7 points per set. Her passion for the game is evident every time she steps on the court. Yafu is explosive, dynamic and an all-around talented student-athlete. She is an active and important member of the Lancer community and continuously supports her teammates.

 

In her second season with the Hawks, Golding led the OCAA West Division with 4.4 points per set as Humber once again went undefeated with an 18-0 record. The outside hitter was third in the OCAA with 3.31 kills per set. At 6-foot-1, Golding is a force on the court and she is extremely athletic. She is truly a team player but what sets her apart from other players is her ability to take over a game, doing it with both power and grace.


Marianne St-Aubin

 

Emma Bergeron

 

Lynx d’Édouard-Montpetit

 

Volontaires de Sherbrooke

In her third and final season at Édouard-Montpetit, St-Aubin led the Lynx to a first-place finish in the RSEQ with an 11-7 record. The RSEQ Player of the Year was first in the conference with 3.25 kills per set and 3.97 points per set and second in service aces per set. Known for her power and intensity, St-Aubin proved she could single-handedly turn a match around and carried the Lynx on her shoulders this season.

 

Bergeron led the Volontaires to a 10-8 record and tie for second place in the competitive RSEQ. The third-year student-athlete compiled 155 defensive digs, 20 aces and 72 kills as a setter. Bergeron showed great instincts when faced with tough in-game situations. She has a calming presence on the court but can also drive the team with her intensity. Bergeron has developed into a great role model for her teammates at Sherbrooke.


Megan LeBlanc

 

Jasmine Smith

 

Holland Hurricanes

 

MSVU Mystics

The ACAA Player of the Year led Holland to an 18-3 record and second-place finish in the conference. LeBlanc was second in the ACAA with 3.56 kills per set and she set a new Hurricanes record for kills in a season. The second-year left side is a reliable, positive force for the team and she values her role as a student-athlete. LeBlanc is relied upon for her consistent play and desire to win at all times.

 

Smith led the Mystics to a 20-1 record and first-place finish in the ACAA. The third-year left side ranked second in the conference in hitting percentage and third with 3.46 kills per set. Smith is a dynamic player who comes to compete every day. She is a team player and shows great leadership on and off the court. Smith’s confidence and wealth of experience have been great assets to Mount Saint Vincent this season.
