SPARTAN ALUMS JANSEN VAN DOORN, VAN BERKEL COMPETING AT WORLD QUALIFIER

LANGLEY, British Columbia – Trinity Western men’s volleyball alums Dan Jansen Van Doorn (Langley) and Lucas Van Berkel (Edmonton) are representing Canada at the NORCECA Men’s Continental Championship Qualification tournament Sept. 26 to Oct. 1 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The middle-playing duo are part of Canada’s 14-man roster that will look to qualify for next year’s FIVB World Championships. There are five spots up for grabs at this year’s NORCECA qualification event.

Both Jansen Van Doorn and Van Berkel were also part of Canada’s historic performance this past summer, in which the senior men’s volleyball team finished third overall in the FIVB World League after a bronze-medal match victory over the USA.

Canada is currently ranked No. 6 in the FIVB rankings. The USA is ranked No. 2.

Both Van Berkel and Jansen Van Doorn were part of the Spartans back-to-back national championship-winning teams in 2011 and 2012.
