Earlier this year, the UBC Department of Athletics announced their 2018 class of inductees into the UBC Sports Hall of Fame. The committee, comprised of seven members throughout the university community, selected two nationally recognized coaches and two players who showed to embody both sportsmanship and leadership and who continue to give back beyond graduating from UBC.
The 2018 inductees include three KIN alumni Jean Forrest, Dale Ohman, and Michael “Mickey” McDowell; as well as Hash Kanjee. On Wednesday, April 4, 2018 the inductees were honoured at the 2018 Big Block Awards & Hall of Fame Dinner.
