Little Caesars Athletes of the Month – February


Congratulations to Heidi Epp of the Women's Volleyball Team and Shawn Franz of the Men's Volleyball Team on being selected the Little Caesars Athletes of the Month for February.

In her final month as a Blazer, Heidi captained her team to a berth in the MCAC Final Fours thanks to a critical away win over Red River, February 14th, that effectively eliminated the Rebels and captured the fourth seed for CMU. Heidi and the Blazers put up quite a fight on home court versus the #1 Providence Pilots last weekend. Willed on by a supportive crowd, the CMU women were narrowly beaten 3-1 (26-24, 20-25, 28-26, 25-18) by the defending Champions. Epp finished with 9 kills, 5 digs, 2 blocks and a 2.2 passing average.



Franz was equally impressive in the Final Fours. Entering as the third seed, CMU faced the Red River Rebels in their semi-final and took the six-time defending Champions to five sets. The 6'3" fourth-year power pounded 12 kills, and added 2 blocks and 2 digs in a match that had the Loewen crowd behind the Blazers in full voice.

Franz was recognized before the match with a selection to the 2013-14 MCAC All-Conference Team for Men's Volleyball.
