MEDICINE HAT, AB — The Medicine Hat College Rattlers men’s volleyball team has inked a player with international experience for their next season.

Aleksa Zivic, a member of the Serbian National Junior Team, has been signed by the Rattlers for the 2019-20 season.

Head coach Mark Porter says he discovered Zivic at a tournament in Europe over the summer, and made him his top recruit.

“Frankly, he was dominant,” he said. “I thought ‘that guy was a good player,’ and I inquired about him, and they said he was in Grade 11, and at that point, he became a priority recruit for us.”

Although he will be a rookie next season, Porter says Zivic’s international experience could have a benefit for the Rattlers.

Porter speaks in detail regarding Zivic and his style of play in the video below.
