Bennett King-Nyberg

Bennett King-Nyberg plays the role of set-up man perfectly for the Duncan Christian School senior boys’ volleyball team’s heavy hitters.

“Without a great setter or a setter who has control of the floor, it makes it very difficult in this game,’’ praised coach Peter Day of King-Nyberg’s performances.

King-Nyberg, 17, and now in Grade 12, has enjoyed a steady rise through the ranks to become an integral member of the highly-ranked DCS squad.

“I think it’s good I was in junior all the way up,’’ he said.

“Because I was able to go (Grades) 8, 9 and 10, I didn’t sit on the bench in senior.’’

Basketball was a slightly different story where King-Nyberg made the jump right to the senior team in Grade 9.

“They just needed people,’’ he explained.

King-Nyberg also plays on the school badminton team.

His calm demeanour and focus is a big reason why this is a strong season for both DCS volleyball and basketball.
