COTR Avalanche sign new talentPosted: August 25, 2012
College of the Rockies’ International Department and the Avalanche Men’s Volleyball team are pleased to announce the signing of Australian Curtis Stockton. A first-year player at the college level, Stockton will be playing the right-side position.
“At 6 feet 7 inches, Curtis brings a definite height advantage as well as great experience from his time in Australia. He is a left-handed attacker which is an advantage in the sport of volleyball and will be an important asset to our team,” continued Kamps.
Stockton has played both indoor and beach volleyball for the Victorian State Teams since 2007 at the Australian Junior National Volleyball Championships. Medallists each year, the team won the under-19 Indoor Championships in 2011 and the under-23 Championships in 2012.
Stockton was selected for the 2009 and the 2012 National All-Star teams and was voted Victoria’s Most Valuable Player in 2009. A career highlight for Stockton was representing Australia in Thailand and Iran at the 8th Annual Asian Youth Boys Volleyball Championship in 2010.
“I am excited about joining the Avalanche and studying Business Administration at the College of the Rockies,” Stockton says.
