Vikes call for Hall of Fame heroes

Vikes Athletics and Recreation seeks nominations for the UVic Sports Hall of Fame

Vikes Athletics and Recreation  greets the new year with new possibilities for the UVic Sports Hall of Fame.

Nominees in the athlete, team, coach, builder and administrator categories must be submitted by Jan. 11.

The selection committee reviews submissions each January. Last year, the 1981-82 women’s rowing team joined skier Lauren Woolstencroft and swimmer Stephanie Dixon as the inductees at the 2016 Celebration of Champions event in March.

The hall of fame aims to honour outstanding contributions of athletes who have enhanced the UVic’s image and reputation through sport or recreation, preserving and recording the history and tradition of sport at the university, promoting sport at UVic and providing fundraising opportunities for the Athletics and Recreation department.

Athletes, whether varsity, community or recreational, can be nominated, as well as any varsity team or coach. The builder/administrator category focuses on an individual who has made a significant contribution to the development or enhancement of a Vikes athletics program. This category typically excludes varsity coaches. A full list of nomination criteria can be reviewed in the terms of reference.

Seven teams and 42 individuals have been inducted into the Hall of Fame since it was created in 2002. The inaugural hall of fame class included Vikes basketball coaching legends Ken and Kathy Shields, rugby player Gareth Rees, Olympic rower Lorne Loomer and soccer’s Wally Milligan.

E-mail nominations to vicvikes@uvic.ca, or mail to Room A245, CARSA Building, PO Box 1700 STN CSC, Victoria, B.C., V8W 2Y2.
