CMU Blazer Athletics


Congratulations to Carter Hofer of Men's Volleyball on being selected CMU's Lionheart Sports Male Athlete of the Month for November. Hofer guided his team to an MCAC best record of 7-1 through the month and was a big part of the Blazers' winning streak that spanned 20-consecutive sets from October 30 to November 25th. 

Hofer consistently led the Blazers' offense in November, leading his team in total kills (96), service aces (17) and passing a consistent 2.5. The 6'3 left side added 6 solo blocks and boasted an attack average of 38% over the first 9 matches of the 2019-20 season.

"This month Carter has shown why he is one of our on-court and off-court leaders", stated head coach Don Dulder. "Carter has elevated his game to another level by leading the team in kills, efficiency (from the outside hitters) and passing. As one of our two captains, he and Makoy (Penner) are great off-court leaders. Carter has embraced this role and is doing a great job. He plays hard all the time and is a team-first guy. It's been a pleasure to have the opportunity to coach him and see him continue his development."

In one of Hofer's top performances this month, the product of the Linden Christian Wings and Winman Volleyball Club pounded his jump-serve for 9 aces versus the ACC Cougars in a straight-sets win while collecting 10 kills on 20 attacks and committing only a pair of errors. Hofer followed that outstanding night from the service line with a big attacking afternoon the following day exploding for 19 kills on 31 attempts in another three set win over a very competitive Cougars' rotation.

With nine matches played, Hofer and the Blazers enter the semester break with a record of 8-1. As the top-ranked team in Manitoba, CMU's next competition will take the Blazers to Niagara Falls for the Niagara Invitational on January 4th and 5th where CMU matches up in round-robin play against Conestoga, St. Clair and Niagara College. The next home action for CMU is January 11th when the Blazers welcome the Providence Pilots to the Loewen Athletic Centre.
