LANGLEY, British Columbia – Trinity Western alums Kristen Moncks (’15) and Alicia Perrin (’15) were part of Canada’s bronze medal winning side at the 2018 Women’s Volleyball Pan American Cup in Peru.
The duo helped Canada to its first medal at the Pan American Cup since the inaugural event in 2002 in Saltillo, Mexico. Canada claimed bronze this year after beating Brazil 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-21).
With the medal, Canada also qualified for the 2019 Pan American Games in Peru.
This was the second time this year that both Perrin and Moncks have represented Canada, having also competed in the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Challenger Cup qualification tournament for NORCECA (North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation) teams.
The Canadian contingent will now begin preparations for the 2018 FIVB Women’s World Championship in Japan (Sept. 29 to Oct. 20).
Both Moncks and Perrin capped their Spartans careers by leading TWU to its first-ever women’s volleyball national championship in 2015.
