Cyr Selected for Canada's World University Team
May 29, 2013
RALEIGH, N.C. – Record-setting NC State setter Megan Cyr, who completed her three-year career with the Wolfpack last fall, has been named to the roster of Team Canada and will represent her native country at the World University Games in Kazan, Russia, this summer.
Cyr, a co-captain on the first Wolfpack team to qualify for the NCAA Championships in 25 years, is one of four setters picked for Canada’s two national teams. One of those teams will participate in the Pan American Cup in Peru June 5-16, while Cyr will travel with the other team to the World University Games July 6-17.
“This should be a very exciting experience and I am looking forward to representing my country and continuing my volleyball career,” Cyr said.
After the games, the St. Andrews, Manitoba, native will return to Winnipeg for an exhibition series in August, then travel to another tournament in Nebraska in September.
Cyr, an All-ACC and AVCA All-America selection in 2012, transferred to NC State after one year at Colorado when head coach Bryan Bunn was hired to lead the Wolfpack program. She played every point in all 357 sets and 96 matches during her three seasons and the Pack improved each year.
She helped guide the team to back-to-back 20-win seasons as a junior and senior and helped the Pack to a fourth-place finish and its first winning record in ACC play since 1988.
She finished with 3,660 career assists, which ranks third in school history. She also had a three-year attack average of .358, which ranks second all time in NC State volleyball history.
