There was plenty to celebrate as athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and Hall of Fame inductees were recognized for their remarkable achievements in amateur sport in our province.  You can see a listing of the other honourees and photos of the event at here.

In addition to coaching the WRC Master’s program and her significant involvement as an Official locally, nationally and internationally, Sandi is an accomplished teacher, researcher, scholar and administrator and a former Olympic athlete with the Canadian Rowing team.
