Cascade crews honoured in Abbotsford

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades men’s golf and women’s soccer teams were honoured last Saturday at the 2011 Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame banquet.

The teams were inducted into the Abbotsford Sports Wall of Fame, marking the fourth straight year that coach Chris Bertram and the golf program have been inducted.  For Coach Rob Giesbrecht, this is a first for UFV women’s soccer.

The men’s golf team earned the 2010 silver medal at both the conference (BCCAA) and national (CCAA) levels, with Chilliwack’s Aaron Pauls playing exceptionally well.

Meanwhile, the women’s soccer team became the first UFV crew to capture a Canada West championship, defeating UBC in the final.

The Cascades went on to earn the CIS bronze medal and finished the 2010 season as Canada’s third ranked women’s soccer program. The team included four Chilliwack natives; Danika and Roxanne Snook, Donna Pinning and Danielle Schmidt.

“We had an outstanding year and I am very proud of the girls, because they worked so hard and achieved beyond their goals,” Giesbrecht said.
