Emmanuel André-Morin, a second-year BBA student and hitter with the Carabins volleyball team, was crowned “player par excellence” by the Fédération québécoise du sport étudiant, which announced the winners of individual annual awards in men’s volleyball on February 14. Georges Laplante, head trainer of the Carabins, is all the more pleased because, as he notes, it is very rare for a second-year player to win this distinction.
Emmanuel also played on Quebec’s first all-star team for the second time in two university seasons. In addition, last season he was named Rookie of the Year in Quebec and for all of Canada, and played on the second Canadian all-star team.
Canadian leader in offensive statistics
Emmanuel, from Vaudreuil-sur-le-Lac, dominated the offensive statistics this season. He led in average points per game and average kills per game in Canada, with 5.73 and 5.06, topping the Canadian rankings in points (339) and kills (384).
