History was made Thursday night when Humber’s men’s volleyball left side Terrel Bramwell became the all-time OCAA record holder for points.

The previous record, 1069 held by Algonquin’s College Keith Marier, was shattered last night during the third set in Humber’s home match against Conestoga College.

“I’ve been here for a long time, and to finally accomplish this, it felt pretty special. Especially being at home,” said Bramwell, business and management student.

Currently in his fifth year with Humber, Bramwell has done nothing less than impress. He is a key player on their team, and constantly wows the fans.

It was a pass by Alex Lewicki and an outside set by Michael Macjen that gave Bramwell a total of 1070 points, to break the record.

He went up, hit the ball down, and history was made. The team joined in the middle of the court, and the crowd was roaring. The game was delayed a moment, as Bramwell shook hands with his coaches, teammates and members of the athletic staff.

“It was crazy in the gym when he broke the record.  Everyone cheering, he was so happy. It was really nice to see,” said first-year health and fitness student, Kelsey Kovar.

After recognizing Bramwell, the game moved forward and the Hawks dominated the rest of the third set.

Humber passed well allowing them to dictate their offense in the fourth set, winning three sets to one.

“We pulled together and worked as a team, and I’m really happy for Terrel,” said John Obi, first-year Architectural technology student.

After this, Bramwell says the men will continue to work hard, and push to first finish top in their division and push hard to medal provincially and nationally. As for Bramwell himself, once his season at Humber is over, he is looking into playing professionally.
