Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for February 13 - 19, 2017
In a weekend series with the Lakeland College Rustlers the Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves needed two victories and as few set losses as possible to qualify for the ACAC Championships.
Simmonds has been an offensive force this season and he maintained his consistent level of play in 2 straight set victories over the Rustlers, with a total 24 kills and 4 service aces on the weekend.
His level of play and positive “Yes We Can” attitude motivated the rest of the team to play their best volleyball. Tristan led the Wolves and came through to score in all situations allowing the Wolves to complete the weekend sweep and qualify as the ACAC North 4th seed.
Simmonds is a 3rd year Personal Training student from Grande Prairie, AB.
