Camosun’s Alex Wolf earns PACWEST Men’s Volleyball Athlete of the Week Award
Third-year Camosun student-athlete Alex Wolf had a stellar weekend in the Chargers two wins over the CBC Bearcats, February 1-2. The 6’3” power from Surrey, BC was called on to play two different positions.
On Friday night Wolf played on the right side and contributed 13 points to the victory, with 11 kills, 2 ace serves and a number of key digs. On Saturday he returned to action, this time in the P1 position, and again led the Chargers with 12 kills on a stellar .500 efficiency, 2 blocks and another ace, along with 6 digs. (more…)
Last Thursday night I had the wonderful opportunity to attend and present at the Camosun College Chargers annual awards night. As with previous years it was a great way to review the incredible year both the teams and student athletes had. It was mentioned that Accent Inns has sponsored the Chargers for 11 years now. Wow! What an honour it has been for our company and certainly for myself (I think I’ve only missed one of the awards banquets).
Once again the MC’s for the evening were Mira Laurence and Jordan Cunningham of CTV Vancouver Island. Not only do these two news and sports media folks know their Chargers but I must say….Billy Crystal watch out, they are headed for the Oscars. They had us laughing all night long. But of course the night wasn’t just about laughs and reviewing the past season but to celebrate some of the awe inspiring efforts put in by the the students, the coaches and the teams as a whole. It should be noted that the Chargers have some of the most dedicated and caring coaches anywhere. I’m glad we also had the chance to applaud the behind the scenes staff. Special thanks from Accent Inns go to Graham Matthews (Athletic Director) and Bonita Joe (Marketing & Communications Officer) for being so awesome to work with and for their sincere focus on helping the students achieve their goals. So read below for an excerpt from the Charger blog listing the many award winners and their achievements.
Your Faithful Supporter,

As the season is nearing the end, local Victoria television station Chek News has this great story on Camosun Chargers Volleyball player Hilary Graham.
Accent Inns is proud to be a sponsor of the Camosun Chargers!
Under the guidance of Coach John Randle, the Camosun College Chargers, who went to the nationals last season, had a great finish at the first tournament of 2011. Coach Randle obviously takes his experience as a Canadian PGA professional and owner of the Randle Golf school in Victoria, and applies it to the Chargers program. It’s very apparent that blessed with some very talented players and one of the best coaches anywhere, we can expect the Chargers to be well represented moving forward.
A great example of this is Jared Hundza, Camosun recruit, claiming the low total at PacWest Tournament #1. Despite his status as a first-year student-athlete at Camosun, the UBC transfer student quickly claimed the top spot on the Leaderboard as the newly-named PACWEST hit the links to begin the 2011 golf season.
