Men's Volleyball: our featured volleyball players

Friday, April 7, 2023

An intense last week for our boys.

At Park University, the title of the Heart of America Athletic Conference (in which they landed in 2021) is celebrated for the first time after the victory last Saturday against GrandView in the final. Therefore, congratulations to Alessandro Tolin, Michele Bascapè and coach Luciano Bucci, the latter named Coach of the Year. With this victory, the Pirates earned access to the National Championship (April 11-15 in DesMoines, Iowa) which is up for grabs for the 2023 NAIA National Title.

A more bitter end of the season certainly for David Barcan with Life University who comes out defeated against St. Andrews after a fought and balanced match for the race in the AAC Tournament and of Daniel Cogo with Midway University: The Eagles lost the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference against Thomas More 3-0. If on the one hand there is disappointment for the team trials, Daniel and David can well console themselves with individual awards: the former was nominated in the Mid-South Academic All-Conference, recognition for student-athletes with the best academic performance, and in the Second Team All Conference; the second, however, in his first season overseas, was included in the Second Team of the Appalachian Athletic Conference.

What to say, keep it up guys, we are proud of your journey on and off the pitch!
