Clegg Selected To Men's Junior National Team

The University of Winnipeg Wesmen in conjunction with Volleyball Canada are pleased to announce that second year setter Mikael Clegg has been selected to Canada's Men's Junior Volleyball team.

The Men's Junior Volleyball team selection camp took place in Gatineau, Quebec last week (April 26-30).

The junior team will be training in Gatineau at the Centre Sportif to prepare for the U21 Pan Am Cup, held from May 14 to 21 in Fort McMurray, AB. 

The Pan Am Cup tournament will also serve as the qualifier for the U21 FIVB World Championship in Czech Republic from June 23 to July 2, 2017. The Top NORCECA (North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation) team and top CSV (South American Volleyball Confederation) side each earn a berth from this event for the U21 Worlds.

"Mikael is another talented hard working product of Selkirk and University of Winnipeg volleyball programs. Jeff Scarcello, Mike Stephens, Dan Lother are all Wesmen alumni who have spent much time with Mikael in his development. Now he joins a long list of Wesmen to don the Team Canada jersey. We in the Wesmen program are all proud of Mikael's selection", said Wesmen Men's Volleyball head coach Larry McKay.
