River East’s Koenig Joins CMU

The CMU men’s basketball team is pleased to announce the commitment of River East Collegiate point guard Matt Koenig. Koenig helped the Kodiaks to back to back KPAC championships in his Grade 10 and 11 years and in his final year, led his team in assists and scored 19+ points per game.

“Matt brings an all-around package of ball-handling, shooting and speed in the open court to our program,” commented CMU head coach Darcy Coss, “I look forward to working with him to maximize his talents and help us have success in the coming year.”

Koenig’s athletic prowess goes beyond the basketball court. As a cross-country runner, Koenig was a consistent top-5 finisher at KPAC meets and was a silver-medalist in the 8oo meter KPAC championships in Grade 11. These accomplishments led to the honor of being selected the 2011 Male Athlete of the Year at River East.

Koenig plans to study towards a degree in Physical Education.
