The men's volleyball team at TRU adds Ontario college experience to fall roster

Experience to WolfPack

The Thompson Rivers University men’s volleyball team have added an all around athlete from Ontario.

Owyn McInnis is a college student who has played both lacrosse and hockey, but chooses to focus on volleyball as his primary sport lately.

McInnis is leaving his current college team at Mohawk College in Hamilton, to join the WolfPack this fall. The sports background and versatility is one of the reasons the WolfPack wanted McInnis.

“Owyn brings some post-secondary experience coming in from Mohawk College in the Ontario College League. He will be a solid addition to our outside hitting group,” Pat Hennelly, the WolfPack’s head coach said in a press release.

“We are always looking for players with a multi-sport background bringing different experiences to our program.”

He was also captain of the U17 Guelph Jr. Gryphons, the U18 Hamilton Smash and John F. Ross Jr. and Sr. high-school teams. McInnis had accolades of MVP with the Smash and being a high-school all star.

The six-foot-four McInnis chose TRU to get a chance at playing in the highest level of the Canada West division. Kamloops, the university and TRU’s head coach also made a strong impression on him.

“Athletically at TRU, I hope to contribute to the team’s long-term growth and success. I want to be a member of a positive winning culture with my new teammates on and off of the court,” said McInnis.

“TRU has a very competitive men's volleyball program, I am looking forward to competing day in and out with my teammates and improving as a team with an end goal of bringing a men's national volleyball title to TRU.”

McInnis will look to study science while attending the university.
