Simon Fraser University Athletics will induct six new athletes, a coach, a builder and a team into the SFU Clan Hall of Fame on March 12.
Clan legend and Canadian hero Terry Fox will be the first inductee in a new category named for him, the Terry Fox Honourary Inductee.
Terry Fox was a Canadian humanitarian, athlete, and cancer research activist. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated, he embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Fox was a distance runner and basketball player for his Port Coquitlam high school and at SFU.
Athletes entering the hall this year will be Carol Huynh (wrestling), Teresa (Kleindienst) Gabriele (basketball), Dr. Tim Bach (swimming), John McGrane (soccer), Alan Kristmanson (basketball) and Ted Warkentin (football).
Former Clan track and field coach Zenon Smiechowski will go in as will Dr. Bob McCormack in the builder’s category and the 1999 Clan softball team that won the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Championship.
