Faculty of Education alumna and retired teacher Heather Cranston, BEd (Sec)’73, MEd’95, was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame on April 12, 2017 along with teammates from the 1969-70 UBC women’s basketball team. The team was both Western Canadian University Champions and Senior A Women’s National Champions that year, and was previously inducted into the UBC Hall of Fame in 1993, and the BC Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.
“It’s really important for women’s teams to be a part of these things so there are legacies for young girls to follow, especially small town people,” Cranston said. “That was a really big thing for us.”
This was the second induction for Cranston, who is a member of a softball team that was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
