UBCO top athletes and other major athletic awards announced via one-of-a-kind online awards ceremony
Natalie Livingston (volleyball) and Hamish Walde (soccer) rise above the rest and are the 2019-20 UBC Okanagan Heat's Outstanding Athletes of the Year.
The two were announced as UBCO’s top athletes of the year and honoured as part of the UBCO virtual banquet.
In response to COVID-19, the annual UBCO Heat Varsity Athletic Awards Celebration evolved into multi-week online event. Labelled #NoBanquetNoProblem, the virtual banquet took place in the form of stories posted to both the @ubcoheat Facebook and Instagram channels.
Prior to Livingston and Walde being named top athlete it was Jordan Korol (basketball) and Mike Mitchell (cross country) receiving the top award for graduating players at UBCO.
For first-year players, Amaya Perry (volleyball) was the female rookie of the year for the Heat, while, Pierson Stanley (soccer), was the top male freshman.
