The awards just keep rolling in for University of the Fraser Valley volleyball star Kayla Bruce.
On Wednesday the fifth-year Cascades middle was named the PacWest conference female athlete of the year. It’s the second consecutive year she’s won the award, which encompasses all sports in the B.C. collegiate league.
Bruce led the conference in total offence (4.57 points per set) and blocks (1.02), and was third in kills (3.26).
It’s just the latest accolade in what has been a glittering season for Bruce.
Earlier this year, the Surrey native was named PacWest women’s volleyball player of the year, and she added the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association women’s volleyball player of the year and All-Canadian honours.
Most importantly, her Cascades won the PacWest conference and CCAA national titles for the first time in program history, posting a 27-2 record along the way.
Bruce is the third UFV student-athlete to win the PacWest female athlete of the year, joining women’s basketball players Jamie Born (2004-05) and Lauren Alonzo (2002-03).
