Former Karnataka volleyball player C. Lawrence passed away after suffering a massive heart-attack late on Monday here.
The 35-year-old from Shimoga enjoyed a distinguished career with Karnataka State Police, a side he once captained, and also represented the State team at several National championships.
Regarded as one of the finest setters of his generation in Karnataka, Lawrence is remembered as a vocal presence on court. He retired from KSP three years ago and, at the time of his death, was employed with a security agency. He is survived by his wife.
In a condolence message, the Karnataka Volleyball Association deemed his death as a “big shock to the volleyball fraternity.” — Sports Reporter
