Pearce savors future re-visitation of court with Griffins

Pearce savors future re-visitation of court with Griffins

Nolan Pearce went to an intersection where he needed to pick among skates and tennis shoes, and maybe the shoe fits.

The new Bev Facey graduate will be continuing onward to the MacEwan University Griffins men’s volleyball crew this fall in the wake of making his school obligation to the Edmonton school.

Likewise engaged with handball and badminton, it before long came down to expecting to zero in on one or the other volleyball or hockey, which Pearce played as far as possible up to the Midget AA level as a forward with the Sherwood Park Kings Athletic Club’s rep hockey program.

“I played a great deal of sports growing up, yet volleyball and hockey were my genuine interests,” he said. “I was playing both of those, however as time went on hockey just turned out to be to a lesser degree no joking matter and less critical to me. I actually play it for no particular reason, yet I realized I could take volleyball farther.”

Pearce discovered his depression on the volleyball court, being named the Facey Falcons MVP for the game in his Grade 11 season.

“Volleyball, I simply adored the climate,” he said. “Additionally my father played volleyball when he was growing up and I had a ton of companions who played, as well. It just turned into my main game and I simply cherished working at it and attempting to turn out to be better at it. It’s a game that you can’t do without help from anyone else. It is three contacts, so everybody in your group should be locked in and have great correspondence to ensure you win the point and that you dominate the match.”

Tragically, the COVID emergency nixed his Grade 12 season and left Pearce battling to stay fixed on advancing in his picked system.

“It was certainly hard for me, not having a ton to do with a year off of the game,” he said. “It was difficult to remain persuaded and to ensure I would be at the awesome my capacity going into next season. In any case, I believe I had the option to get over that and stay in shape enough to be prepared for this fall.”

Fortunately his past group of work had dazzled the people pulling the strings at MacEwan enough to see him make a school responsibility with the Griffins.

“I’m truly glad to have the option to have the option to remain at home and still have the option to play at a significant level,” Pearce said. “It’s anything but an incredible air and the mentor has been inviting. I’m truly happy I had the option to arrive on there.”
