Boston Pizza RDC Athletes of the Week

Men: Chris Osborn, Kings Volleyball
Hometown: Scottsdale, AZ
Year/Program: 4th Yr. / BEd
Chris Osborn was an offensive and defensive monster all weekend for the Kings Volleyball Team. Chris was a huge reason for the Kings 3-1 victory on Friday night over GMAC who is currently ranked #2 in the country behind the Kings. He had 11 kills on 13 attempts with no errors and 2 blocks. Saturday at GMU he was named player of the match with another 11 kill performance and 5 stuff blocks. Unfortunately KVB lost in 4 sets on Saturday but Chris’ strong performance all weekend is a huge positive going into Conference Championships in two weeks.

Women: Karissa Kuhr, Queens Volleyball
Hometown: Fort McMurray, AB
Year/Program: 3rd Yr. / KNSS
In a weekend where the Queens struggled to find their game, Karissa provided effort and leadership. Offense was tough to come by but Karissa did finish the weekend with 19 kills, 3 aces, 32 digs and 2 stuff blocks. In her 3rd and final year with the Queens, Karissa is playing well down the stretch.
