Abbotsford’s Steven Marshall has returned to the volleyball court for the first time in 2021, and continues chasing his athletic dreams in the men’s A league of France’s National Volleyball League.

Marshall is suiting up as a forward for Chaumont Volley-Ball 52, which was established in 1996. The club has won two league championships in its history.

Chaumont currently sits in sixth in the 14-team league, with a record of 14-7-7.

The league returned to play back in October, which marked a seven month absence from the court for Marshall. The season wraps up on March 27.

Marshall, who played university volleyball with the Trinity Western University Spartans, helped that team win a national championship in 2012. He also represented Canada in the sport at the 2016 Summer Olympics. He has previously played professionally in Germany and Poland.
