The 6’5” middle played high school volleyball at Tofield School under coach Kurt Otto. He has played club volleyball in Camrose as a member of the Vikings for two years under coach Greg Ryan. Cole trained as a member of the Team Alberta U16 Beach Volleyball team. Cole was also selected to represent Alberta with the U17 team at the Western Canadian Elite Championship.

As a member of the Vikings, Cole was selected in his second year as an ACAC conference First Team All-Star and a CCAA All-Canadian. This was a remarkable achievement for a player on a team that placed ninth in the conference.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome him back to Augustana Volleyball,” added Director of Athletics and Head Coach Greg Ryan. “Cole’s character and athletic ability are a combination one does not see very often. Having an athlete of Cole’s stature compete at Augustana speaks to the quality of this young program and the great educational experience that Augustana offers to students.”

Cole will be pursuing a degree in Kinesiology with the goal of becoming a chiropractor.
