At the BC Athletics Annual Awards Banquet on Nov. 19 2016, two of UAC's members were presented with awards for their achievements in Track and Field.
Jasneet Nijjar was an award winner in the Midget Female category and Sue Kydd was awarded the Dave Coupland Inspirational Award in the Officiating category. Jasneet achieved standard in the 200m with 24.74, the 300m with 39.36, the 80mH a 11.33 and the 200mH with a time of 26.25. All these performances were the number 1 performance in the province for 2016 and her 200mH time is a national record.
Sue received her award for being, well, Inspirational! The award is presented to a BCA member who has been an inspiration for Officials; someone who has made it fun.
Congratulations to both women, you've made UAC proud.
