Nov. 28, 2014 – Terrel Bramwell of the Humber Hawks broke the all-time OCAA men’s volleyball scoring record on Thursday night in Etobicoke, ON.
Bramwell, a fifth year star at Humber, scored 22 points in the Hawks four-set victory over the Conestoga Condors. In 57 career matches, he now has 1,075 points, surpassing Keith Marier (Algonquin/La Cité) and his mark of 1,069 points.
“This record is certainly secondary to any of the championships he has been a part of, but it truly is an indicator of how great a player he has been, over an extended period of time,” said Jim Bialek, Sports Information Director at Humber College.
In 2012, Bramwell led the Hawks to the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s National Championship title at Columbia Bible College in Abbotsford, BC. He was named the most valuable player of the tournament. Bramwell, who has led Humber to two OCAA titles, is also a two-time CCAA All-Canadian and has been named to the First All-Tournament team twice at Nationals.
Up next for Bramwell is the all-time kills record, which is also held by Marier, who played four seasons. Bramwell currently has 896 career kills, 14 short of Marier’s record (910). He leads the CCAA in average kills per set. Humber is back in action on Sunday at Niagara College.
Bramwell also holds two other individual OCAA records: Most kills in a single match (36) and most points in a match (40, twice).
“Terrel has been as big an impact player for his sport as any student-athlete has been here at Humber,” said Bialek.
The Hawks are currently No. 6 in the CCAA men’s volleyball rankings. Bramwell, a two-time OCAA champion, would like nothing more than to finish his career with a second national title. The 2015 CCAA Men’s Volleyball National Championship will be held March 11-14 at Holland College in Charlottetown, PEI.
The CCAA is a national sport organization enriching the academic experiences of student-athletes through intercollegiate sport.
