Groenveld named head coach of York Lions

Nathan Groenveld, head coach of the Niagara College men's volleyball program, has been named the new head coach of the York University Lions men's volleyball team.

"Today is a bitter sweet day for me as a coach" said Groenveld. "The last eight seasons have been outstanding. My time with this program and the terrific student-athletes that I have had the privilege to work with, have been a truly outstanding experience. But I am excited to accept this new challenge with the York Lions."

Groenveld has served as the Knights head coach since the 2010-11 season. During his time at the helm, he guided the team to a record of 84-60, six consecutive play off appearances, an OCAA championship, and a CCAA bronze medal.

During Groenveld's tenure, the Knights also saw eight players named CCAA Academic All-Canadians, and three players named CCAA All-Canadians.

The entire Niagara College Knights family wishes Coach Groenveld the best of luck during this exciting new opportunity.
