Jeff Scott (Georgetown) of the Niagara Knights men’s volleyball program (14-4, 2nd OCAA West) has been named a CCAA All-Canadian.
Scott became the fourth men’s volleyball player, and 10th Niagara Knights’ student-athlete to receive CCAA All-Canadian recognition. This is the first time that Scott has been named an All-Canadian for his regular season performance. Last season he was named a CCAA Second-Team All-Star en route to a bronze medal at the CCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship.
In addition to his national recognition Scott was named also named an OCAA First-Team All-Star for his performance this season. The fourth-year outside hitter was a consistent presence for the Knights throughout the entire season. He was among team leaders in almost every statistical category and led the way in service aces with 15. Scott finished second on the team in points and kills, while also finishing third in digs.
Scott’s accomplishment marks the fourth consecutive year in which a Niagara Knight has earned CCAA All-Canadian recognition, and third men’s volleyball player in the past four years. This is also the first time the Knights have had three All-Canadians in the same year, as golfers Lorelle Weavers (Burlington) and Evan Littlefield (Thunder Bay) received All-Canadian recognition in the fall.
Scott and the rest of the Knights teammates will kick off their bid to repeat as OCAA champions on Feb. 25 afternoon at 3 p.m. against the Durham Lords (16-4, 3rd OCAA West). The match will be streamed live at http://senecasting.ca/varsity/2016_OCAA_MVB/Webcast.
