Posted: March 8, 2017

The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association is pleased to announce that Samantha Zacharias of the Briercrest College and Seminary Clippers has been selected to the 2016-17 CCAA All-Canadian team for the third year in a row. Zacharias was selected for this award based upon her performance during the ACAC regular season.

Samantha Zacharias is a fourth-year BA Business Administration student-athlete from Waldheim, Saskatchewan. The outside hitter’s performance was a huge part in leading Briercrest to their best season since joining the ACAC (20-4 in league play, second place in the ACAC’s tough South Division).

The three-time All-Canadian led the CCAA with 347 kills, 99 service aces and 459.5 overall points. This season, Zacharias became only the third Women’s Volleyball player in ACAC history to reach 1,000 kills. Zacharias, the ACAC Player of the Year, is a leader at Briercrest with her outstanding work ethic and determination.
