OCAA Volleyball All-Stars Head to Fleming

OCAA – March 16, 2012

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – The best of the best in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) volleyball will be on display at the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre on Saturday as Fleming College hosts the 2012 OCAA Volleyball All-Star Games.

The 19th annual event brings together the elite collegiate volleyball players from across the province for a day of camaraderie and competition. Fifty student-athletes will be representing 21 Ontario colleges and universities at this event.

Two members of the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) men’s volleyball champions will take to the court in Peterborough. CCAA and OCAA men’s volleyball player of the year Terrel Bramwell and Humber teammate Andre Brown will team up with CCAA all-Canadian Justin Scapinello (London, Ont.) of Mohawk to form the nucleus of Team West.

Team East will be represented by a trio of record setters. Keith Marier (Ottawa) of La Cite set OCAA regular season records in offensive points and kills; Durham’s Dave McMann (Elmvale, Ont.) established single season and career records in blocks; while Matt Woods (Pickering, Ont.) of Loyalist is the all-time OCAA leader in service aces.

In the women’s match, CCAA all-Canadians Kelly Nyhof (Georgetown, Ont.) and Shawna Metcalf (Azilda, Ont.) will square off for the first time since their teams met in the OCAA final last month. Nyhof, the reigning OCAA women’s volleyball player of the year, will be joined by Humber teammates Kris Dowling (Freelton, Ont.) and Nina Carino (Scarborough, Ont.) on Team West. Metcalf and her Cambrian teammate Kelsey Fielding (Sudbury, Ont.) will lead Team East.

A player’s clinic will take place in the morning. The women’s all-star game begins at 3:30 p.m., followed by the men’s all-star game at 5:30 p.m.

Both games can be seen on sportslive.ca.
