The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Eivind Andersen, from the men’s volleyball team.

The fifth year outside hitter was instrumental in the Varsity Reds 3-1 victory over the Dalhousie Tigers on Saturday, which earned the team their second consecutive Atlantic University Sport championship.

Andersen had 26 kills, 16 digs and 7 blocked attacks in Saturday’s win and was named the MVP of the championship series.

“In order to be successful, your best players need to step up in the big moments, and Eivind certainly did that for us in the final,” says Varsity Reds head coach Dan McMorran. “He’s shown he is one of the best players in the country, both offensively and defensively. I’m very proud of the way he continues to elevate his game and his commitment to continue to get better.”
