- Submitted by

April 17 , 2020 (Windsor, ON) The St. Clair College Department of Athletics and men’s volleyball program is pleased to announce the signing of three more top recruits for the 2020-21 season. The men that will be joining the program are Nick Kwiatkowski, Jonah Certossi and Jacob Derksen. These are in addition to the commitment of four additional recruits announced last week.

Kwiatkowski is from Essex where he is graduating from Essex District High School. The 6’2 setter is also a member of Sky Volley. Nick is going to be taking the Pre-Health Science program with plans to move into the Nursing program.

Second year head coach Shawn Reaume is excited to have Kwiatkowski join the team. “Nick has developed into a strong setter, showing that he can lead a team to OFSSAA more than once and also compete with the top club teams in Ontario. His experience in running a high level offense will translate positively and immediately for us.”

Jonah Certossi is a native of Belle River where he attended Belle River District High School and  was named a 1st Team All-City All Star. Jonah is a 6’6 middle who also plays for Sky Volley where he has earned five OVA gold medals. Certossi will be taking the three year Sport & Recreation Management program at St. Clair.

“Jonah has shown massive growth in the last few years, quickly becoming a difference maker in the middle. His ability to control the net with his size and reach, as well as his motivation to improve will likely see him make an immediate impact in the OCAA,” stated Reaume.

Jacob Derksen hails from Essex where he will be graduating from Essex District High School where he was named MVP of the senior boys team in 2019. Derksen is 6’1 and can both set or play outside hitter. Jacob will be enrolled in the Pre-Health Science program in his first year with plans to advance on to the Nursing program after that.

Coach Reaume is looking forward to adding Derksen’s versatility to the program. “Jacob is an impact player in multiple positions, bringing with him a high level of physicality and volleyball IQ. His time spent in the provincial program, competing in OFSSAA twice, and regularly playing against the top clubs teams in the province have made high skilled and high pressure situations the norm.”

St. Clair finished the 2019-20 regular season with a record of 8-10 in the OCAA West Division ending up in 6th place.  The Saints almost pulled off a huge upset in their crossover playoff match falling to the eventual bronze medal winning Georgian Grizzlies by a score of 3-2 dropping the 5th set 15-13. The Saints were ranked as high as 9th in the OCAA during the season.
