Langley alum helps Canada win U21 Volleyball bronze

The Canadian team beat the United States for the medal.

The Canadian team, including a Langley player, brought home bronze from the U21 Men’s Volleyball Championship

Brodie Hofer was part of the team that defeated the United States 3-1(25-22, 25-23, 25-27, 25-17) and secured the bronze medal last week.

“I’m very proud of my players because after a big loss yesterday [to Cuba], we were still able to come back today and fight for third place,” said Joao Paulo Bravo, Canada’s U21 head coach.

Cuba went on to win gold and the only ticket available to the FIVB 2019 U21 World Championship after beating the Dominican Republic 3-0 (25-16, 25-15, 25-20) on Saturday night.

Canadian Fynnian McCarthy was named one of the tournament’s best blockers.
