BLG Award winner Ens enters Hall of Fame

Former Saskatchewan men's volleyball star led team to 2004 national championship

EDMONTON – Adam Ens concluded his stellar varsity volleyball career at the University of Saskatchewan in the greatest way possible: scoring the winning point for the Huskies in the 2004 CIS final.

The Huskie standout was announced Thursday as the latest inductee in the Canada West Hall of Fame.

A native of Rosthern, Sask., Ens spent five seasons with the Huskies, with his final season in 2003-04 leading to some major hardware.

Ens won the BLG Award as the top male student-athlete in Canada, while also claiming the CIS Men's Volleyball Player of the Year award.

Overall the Huskies won three conference titles during Ens’ time with the program, in 2000, 2001, and 2004. He was a standout in the classroom as well, being named an academic All-Canadian four times, while earning degrees in both Science and Education.

For the last century, organized university sport has been a central part of the student experience at institutions across Western Canada. Beginning with the University of Manitoba capturing the first Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (WCIAU) men's hockey banner in 1919-20, student-athletes have been competing to reach their full potential in sport and the classroom, while enriching campus life. 

To commemorate 100 years of university sport across Western Canada, the Canada West Hall of Fame was created in the spring of 2019, with the first induction class set to be unveiled throughout the 2019-20 season.
