Dylan Mortensen will represent Canada at the 2019 FISU Summer Universiade in Naples, Italy.

Mortensen, who recently completed his second season with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, was one of 12 players named to the men’s volleyball team, which will be coached by Dave Preston from McMaster University.

Mortensen was recently named to the Mens National B Team and has been in Gatineau, Quebec training with the top players in the country.

The 6’7’’ outside hitter was named a Canada West Conference Second-Team All-Star after leading the Huskies with 3.58 kills per set.

Volleyball will run from July 5-13 in Naples this summer.
