In fact, until Sunday, it'd never happened:
Mark the date down: March 2,2008. A historical day for Thompson Rivers University. One of Canada's youngest universities came of age on this date. Its the day they captured their first ever CIS medal. The WolfPack Mens Volleyball team captured a bronze at the CIS Nationals at the University of Laval.Anyone else have goosebumps?
I'm kidding. But this is a pretty big deal for TRU, which hasn't been on the CIS scene very long at all and has managed to become competitive quickly in the ultra-competitive men's volleyball circuit in Canada West.
With the bronze, TRU now has more men's volleyball medals than schools like Guelph, McMaster, Memorial, Queen's and Western, all of whom have been around for ages.
Between TRU and Ryerson, I just may have graduated from two of the least-decorated CIS schools in the country, but the WolfPack have beaten the Rams on the board.
Probably by a few decades.
