Bisons' Komishon named rookie of the year

  • Print

Setter Chris Komishon, 20, of the Univeristy of Manitoba Bisons has been named Canada West conference men’s volleyball 2010-2011 rookie of the year and left-side Chris Voth, 20, has been selected as 2010-11 Canada West second team all-star.

Stepping straight into the starting setter position in his first Bisons season, Komishon was an instant fit in the ‘quarterback’ role with his team.

A graduate of Winnipeg’s St. Paul’s High School, Komishon was sixth in the conference with 8.52 assists/per game and fifth in total assists with 571. He started and played in all 18 conference regular season games and recorded 28 kills, 106 digs, 40 overall blocks and 11 service aces.

"He played quite well with lots of pressure," said Bisons head coach Garth Pischke. "Being a setter is a tough position, especially when you are a rookie, and Chris dealt with the expectations and delivered a great season."

For Voth, also a St. Paul’s graduate, it is his first conference all-star selection in his three-year Bisons career. He has been previously honoured as the 2008-09 CIS and Canada West rookie of the year. Voth was tenth in Canada West with 3.12 kills per game (67 games/209 kills), sixth in service aces (67 games/15 aces) and tenth in conference points at 3.69 per game (67 games/247 points). The Winnipeg native started and played in all 18 conference regular season games and added 111 digs, 38 overall blocks and 17 assists.
