Dane Pischke receives Iwanoczko volleyball memorial scholarship

  • Print

Third-year right side Dane Pischke, of the University of Manitoba Bisons men’s volleyball team was awarded the Dr. Dale Iwanoczko Memorial Scholarship this morning.

The scholarship, which includes a minimum value of $1,500, goes annually to a returning Bison volleyball player who best exemplifies Iwanoczko’s characteristics of leadership in volleyball and scholastic accomplishment.

Pischke, 20, is currently tied for sixth in Canada West conference kills with 3.30 per game, sixth in blocks at 1.18 per game and fifth in points at 4.15. He was also a 2009-10 CIS Academic All-Canadian award winner in both his first two seasons.

"Dale played for me for five years," said Garth Pischke, Dane’s father and coach at the U of M, "and there are a lot of similarities between Dale and Dane. Dale was an outstanding student athlete, worked hard in practices, and never complained about anything, and did the same thing in his academics.

"Dane is the same thing. He’s Academic All Canadian in both of his first two years here. He is working hard, and having a fantastic season on the court as a player."

"Just receiving this award is amazing for me," said Dane Pischke, "and I am very honoured. There more stuff I’d like to accomplish, but at this point in time, I feel like I am doing great. Obviously there is always room to learn more, and so I am excited about that."
