Gord Perrin has joined the Canada West Hall of Fame and becomes the first TRU WolfPack athlete to accomplish the feat.

Perrin, from Creston, starred for the WolfPack men’s volleyball team for three seasons and went on to captain the Canadian men's volleyball team and represent the nation at the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio and 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo.

"Gord has meant a lot to the WolfPack men's volleyball program,” WolfPack men’s volleyball head coach Pat Hennelly said in a press release. “He had an immediate impact on our team's performance, helping us get to three straight national championships, with two Canada West bronze medals and one CIS bronze medal.

“Gord has put the WolfPack name on the international and national volleyball scene.”

Perrin, who played professionally in Russia, Turkey, Italy, China and Iran, retired from volleyball after the Tokyo Olympics.

"I always had aspirations to play professional volleyball and to one day represent Canada in the Olympics,” Perrin said in a press release. “These goals were always in my mind when I was competing in Canada West. I am very grateful for the university system which allowed me to develop into the player I am today.”
