Reece Dixon led the Brandon Bobcats men's volleyball squad to one of the most successful weekends in program history, as the previously No. 2-ranked Bobcats shocked the No. 1 Trinity Western Spartans in a dominating performance this past weekend. The Bobcats took six straight sets over the Spartans, as Dixon’s play provided the spark needed to lifted his team to the top of the Canada West standings. 

The fourth-year Sherwood Park, Alta. product masterfully distributed the ball on offence and hustled on every defensive touch Friday, before taking a ball of the face late in the third set. Dixon returned to the floor after immediate repairs and closed out the match with 28 assists.

With his face still swollen on Saturday, Dixon’s determination lifted the Bobcats to a dominating 3-0 win, which saw him register 33 assists.

Thanks to the victories, Brandon took over top spot in the U SPORTS top 10 for the first time in program history. The 'Cats will have another top 10 showdown this weekend, as Brandon takes on the No. 4 Alberta Golden Bears in Edmonton.
