The East Kootenay Volleyball Club (EKVC) would like to congratulate Sarah Soderstrom, Aidan Peters and Dayne Elliot for being the recipients of EKVC’s John Kendal Award and Service Award, respectively.
The John Kendal Award is awarded for achieving a post-secondary recruitment and demonstration dedication to the support of EKVC, fellow athletes and the volleyball community.
Both Sarah and Aidan recently graduated from Mount Baker Secondary School (MBSS) and have been recruited to post-secondary colleges.
Sarah will be playing volleyball at the Lethbridge College, while Aidan has signed with the men’s volleyball program at the College of the Rockies.
The Service Award is awarded for exemplary leadership, sportsmanship and service to the support of EKVC, fellow athletes and the volleyball community.
