Former Langley student makes most of post-secondary sports

A former Walnut Grove Gator is in his fifth year as a Clipper on the volleyball team at Saskatchewan’s Briercrest College.

Cody Quiring is studying business administration and marketing at the college and has taken the volleyball skills learned in Langley to his post-secondary career.

It was a practice between Briercrest and Trinity Western University at Walnut Grove Secondary that started Quiring on the path to Briercrest.

During this practice was where Coach Nigel Mullan started recruiting Quiring.

That was coupled with the influence of his several relatives who have attended.

During his five years, Quiring has grown up in the program and is one of the current leaders (assistant captain).

Even though the player sporting #7 isn’t the biggest man on the floor, Quiring is a strong attacker and server, and is also a steady force in the passing game.

His skills drew the attention of the league last year with him being recognized as an ACAC Athlete of the Week and a Second-Team All-Conference Team selection.

Quiring is focused on seeing the team’s current goals become a reality, and with the privilege of hosting Nationals and playing in front of the best fans in the ACAC, it is going to make for an exciting finish to his career as a Clipper.

This won’t end Quiring’s involvement at Briercrest, however, as #7 is planning on pursuing a sports management degree and assistant coaching with the men’s volleyball team next year.
