Kleingeltink earns athlete of the week honours

Former Langley Christian star named PacWest player of the week for UFV Cascades volleyball

Langley’s Joel Kleingeltink was named the PacWest men’s volleyball athlete of the week.

The fourth-year right side hitter was dominant in a pair of five-set thrillers against the defending national Camosun College Chargers. He racked up 22 kills, three blocks and 11 digs the first night as Camosun won in five sets.

And in the rematch on Saturday, he had another colossal outing with 20 kills, three blocks and nine digs as the Cascades won this time in five sets. Fraser Valley improved to 8-6 on the season.

Kleingeltink is a Langley Christian graduate.

Camosun was ranked No. 1 in the country but fell to No. 2 with the loss while Fraser Valley improved from No. 15 to No. 13 in the polls.
