He was 12 years old, and it was love at first sight.


“Basically the first time I touched a volleyball I loved the game,” Nigel Nielsen said going into the provincial high school volleyball Final Four. “Ever since then it’s been my No. 1 priority over any other sport.”


This week, the Lord Selkirk Royals outside hitter was named the No. 1 boys player in Manitoba in the Winnipeg Sun’s annual coaches poll.


Nielsen will lead the defending champion Royals into Thursday’s semifinal against St. Paul’s as focused as he’s ever been.
