Peckham brings size to Lakers Men's Volleyball teamFriday, June 07, 2013 by: Marielle Rochefort Nipissing Lakers men’s volleyball coach, Eric Yung, is pleased to announce the addition of Jack Peckham to the team.
"I am excited to welcome Jack Peckham to our volleyball program,” said Yung.
“He is an enthusiastic student-athlete that will fit right in at Nipissing University. His eagerness to improve on and off the court combined with his size enables him to compete at the OUA level. Jack has tremendous upside and I am really looking forward to working with him and helping him reach his full potential."
Peckham, a 6’7” Middle Blocker from Hamilton, Ontario, played for the MAC volleyball Club team during the 2011-12 season, where they placed 5th at Nationals.
More recently, Peckham led the Cathedral High School team to a 48-win season and a 5th place finish at AAAA OFSAA.
Peckham is excited to join Nipissing as it enters CIS play this fall.
“The OUA is filled with talent and will provide great competition,” said Peckham.
“After touring the university and city of North Bay, I feel that the tight-knit community provides a great background to grow as an athlete and person. I like the small class sizes and ability to interact with professors at Nipissing too.”
The Lakers OUA schedule is now complete and the Lakers will begin OUA play at home against the Waterloo Warriors October 18 @ 8 pm followed by the Guelph Gryphons the following evening at the same time.
