Little Caesars Athletes of the Month – January

1470063_724285870934853_2001322740_n IMG_72541Congratulations to Erin Blaine of the Women’s Volleyball Team and Ryan Kehler of the Men’s Basketball Team on being selected the Little Caesars Athletes of the Month for January.

What started as a difficult month for the Blazers, finished with most important win of the year last weekend; a five set victory on home court over Red River. CMU entered the match percentage points below the Rebels for the fourth and final berth in the Conference Championships and the third-year libero was instrumental in the win.

“Erin is playing her best volleyball of the season right now and it couldn’t come at a better time for us,” said first-year head coach Joe Moore. Blaine finished the match with 5 digs and recorded a passing average of 2.4.

The Blazers suffered a disappointing 46-point defeat to the 20-2 US Junior College powerhouse in November and nearly pulled off the home upset versus the Jacks in January, falling 95-91.

Kehler was a prominent force for his team this month, conducting the offense and finding 15-points himself, including 4 threes against the Jacks. Three nights later, the Steinbach Regional product paced the Blazers for 19-points and a 95-87 win over the Trinity Lions.
