Athletic Awards 2018

by Lindsay Brooke, Athletic Director

2017-18 has been another extremely successful year. Pride of place goes to the athletes and coaches involved in winning the AA BC Senior girls soccer title. Also reaching the provincial podium were Senior boys soccer (2nd), tennis (2nd), Junior girls track and field (2nd), Junior boys rugby 7s (2nd), Senior boys rugby (3rd) and Junior boys rugby (3rd).

In addition, six teams won Senior Island titles, while, of thirteen possible BC School Sports provincial championships, SMUS qualified for ten. Moreover, squash players and rowers left their mark on the national and international stages.

A special thanks to Andy Rodford for his very strong support as Acting Head of School. I am so often reminded of the huge role sport plays at SMUS. Indeed, participation, enjoyment, performance and sportsmanship remain of vital importance, as reflected in the mottos of St. Michaels (“Nothing is great unless it is good”) and University School (“A healthy mind in a healthy body”). To these, I would add a few final words: “To play is good, to win is better, but to love the game is the best.”
