TRU WolfPack men’s volleyball player Robin Schoebel has been named 2007 rookie of the year, selected by head coaches from across the Canada West Division.
Schoebel, who played in Europe last year with the under-18 French national team, averaging 4.10 points and 3.42 kills a set for seventh best in the conference.
The outside hitter also picked up an average .27 aces a set for ninth in the conference.
He will spend the summer in Canada and will return to the team next season.
“I think that to find someone of his ability and desire to be here for five years is certainly exceptional, and someone you can build a winning program around,” said WolfPack coach Pat Hennelly.
Schoebel was a big part of the reason TRU was able to improve its record to 6-12 this season, compared to last year’s 1-19.
