The entire Smash Volleyball Club is heart broken at the news of the tragic car accident that took the life of our alumnus (2019), Owyn McInnis, and severely injured two of his current teammates. Owyn was a well-respected member of his team and our club, a talented athlete and a joy to coach. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, coaches, and teammates.
Thompson Rivers University is honouring Owyn with the Owyn McInnis Memorial Men’s Volleyball Athletic Award. As a way of celebrating Owyn’s memory, and at his family’s wishes, please consider donating to the scholarship fund through the following link: tru.ca/owyn.
