Cascades’ Dahl earns weekly honour

Former Langley Christian player Isaiah Dahl named PacWest's volleyball athlete of the week

Langley’s Isaiah Dahl has been named the PacWest male volleyball athlete of the week.

Dahl, a second-year libero from Langley Christian for the UFV (Fraser Valley) Cascades, showed off his defensive abilities to the fullest in a pair of road games against the Douglas Royals over the weekend.

The Royals (4-0) edged the Cascades (2-2) in five sets on Friday and in three sets on Saturday, but Dahl excelled. He collected 20 digs in the opener, and followed up with another 15 digs in just three sets of work on Saturday for a total of 35 digs and an average of 4.38 digs per set.

For the season, Dahl is third in the PacWest in digs per set with 4.50, and he’s second in total digs with 63.

“Isaiah was outstanding for us – he really put together a complete weekend,” Cascades head coach Kyle Donen said. “He keeps getting better every time he steps on the floor. I’m excited to see what he brings this weekend.”
