As Dowhaniuk is becoming the new points-leader on the team, the Thunderbirds’ starting line is seeing potential for a dynamic future.
The men’s volleyball team is still looking for a real powerhouse from the attack line — someone they can trust to set the ball with no hesitation.

"Hats off to them, they played a really complete match and they made us have to be our best today — and we weren't our best."
“Our whole team came out with a lot of energy and drive, not letting balls hit the ground, and going after everything.”
"We get the luxury now of sitting back and watching tomorrow and potentially the next day and seeing who we end up getting, and we'll start preparing for them at that point.”
“It’s good to get a win after last time we played them [and] we lost. It just brings our confidence up against this team."
“We’re already mentally checked in or focusing on next week and our playoff [matches] that will start on Thursday.”
Last season, the Bisons put a stop to the ’Birds playoff run early, defeating UBC on their home court in two games — the teams haven't faced each other since.
