Men's volleyball adds polish pair !!

April 19th, 2009

Krzysztof Orman will be a great addition to the Mariners team in the 2009/10 season.  His international beach experience will help bring some experience to the team.  When utilized the right way, beach volleyball players make great indoor players.  They make smarter decisions, have great ball control, and have a variety of attacking weapons.  With Milo Warren not returning and Scott Weninger finishing his eligibility, Krzysztof will help fill the gap.  "I am looking forward to seeing what Krzysztof can bring to the Mariners next year" comments VIU Men's Volleyball Head Coach Chris Densmore. A member of Polish National Beach Volleyball Team (2005-2007), won a Bronze Medal at FIVB Under 21 World Beach Championship (2006), Silver Medalist at Under 20 European Beach Championship (2006)
Sticking with the Polish theme, past season assistant coach Raf Korkowski has decided to trade in the coaching position for a spot on the team.  Raf's experience and leadership will for sure help the Mariners get back to their winning ways in the BCCAA and CCAA.  It will be great to have Raf's offense as well as his consistent all round play.  This past season the Mariners had a great season, but were very inexperienced.  Adding the Polish pair of Raf and Krzysztof will help to add valuable knowledge and experience to the team.  Watch out for the Polish connection next year as I think they will both have great seasons for the Mariners.
