A spectacular weekend on the court has earned Rudy Verhoeff Canada West player of the week honours.

Verhoeff had 33 kill, 14 digs and six blocks in leading the Trinity Western Spartans men's volleyball team to a pair of victories in Kamloops against the Thompson Rivers WolfPack.

Verhoeff, a middle/left-side for the Spartans who won the 2011 CIS championship most valuable player award, sits third in Canada West in kills per set at 3.9, seventh in hitting percentage at 33.5 per cent and 15th in blocks at 0.93 per game.
