The Providence Pilots volleyball team made program history in Toronto March 8, becoming the first team from the program to compete at the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) national championships.

Unfortunately for the Pilots, the team came away empty handed, as men’s volleyball Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (CCAA) teams continue to search for their first win at nationals.

Entering the tournament as the eight-seed, Providence was able to take a set off of eventual champions Camosun College from Victoria. They also lost to Briercrest and College Sainte-Anne, but their two sets won was the best performance for any MCAC team at CCAA nationals.

Despite the results on the court, Providence’s team still earned recognition, coming home with the CCAA exemplary leadership award. The award is given to a team or individuals who demonstrate leadership and set an example for others to follow.

“Recipients must have respect for the rules and spirit of the rules of the sport in pursuit of excellence, respect the officials and show acceptance of their decisions, respect the opponent, exhibit sportsmanlike behaviors and maintain dignity under all circumstances,” a news release from Providence College reads.

“The Pilots Men’s Volleyball team has well represented Providence and made us proud of their representation of our entire institution.”
