Bearcats land blue-chipper Lieuwen

The Columbia Bible College men’s volleyball team secured the services of one of the top players in B.C., Abbotsford's Jeremy Lieuwen.

The Columbia Bible College men’s volleyball team got an early start on recruiting season, securing the services of one of the top players in the province, Abbotsford’s Jeremy Lieuwen.

The Mennonite Educational Institute senior has committed to join the defending national champion Bearcats in the fall of 2012. In addition to his success with the Eagles high school squad, Lieuwen has attracted a lot of attention on the provincial and national stages over the past couple years. In May 2011 he helped lead the Fraser Valley Volleyball Club to a bronze medal at U18 club nationals, and he went on to win another national bronze in beach volleyball with partner Kristof Schlagintweit in August.

“Jeremy is an impact player,” Bearcats coach Rocky Olfert said in a press release. “He can step in and not only play at the next level, but be a strong contributor on our team. To have him commit is also a great statement for our program, that elite players like Jeremy want to be a part of this culture we have created.”

Lieuwen said a big part of his decision to attend CBC was because he desires to be involved in Christian missions in the future.

“I feel that CBC is the right fit for me because God has clearly opened this door for me and made it apparent that it has everything I am looking for in a college,” Lieuwen said. “I am excited for what awaits me there.”
