“It is something that we can be very proud of,” said Huskies coach Keegan Kuhr, of the bronze medal, which is only the third ever CCAA medal for the Fort McMurray-based school, the Huskies capturing silver at the 2015-2016 CCAA Men's Soccer Championships while Lisa Collins earned a bronze in CCAA women's cross country in 2003-2004.

Justin Delorme had 25 kills in victory. Teammate Radoslaw Brzozowski added 10 kills and a service ace.

Both players were named to the All Tournament team with Delorme making First All Star and Brzozowski Second All Star status.

Setter Kelly Woods was named Huskies Player of the Game with 25 assists, three kills and four blocks
