Lethbridge College, along with several other provincial post-secondary institutions, has made the collective decision to forgo competing in the 2021 ACAC winter season for basketball, volleyball and futsal.
The Kodiaks are one of 12 institutions from across Canada taking part in the inaugural Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) FIFA20 Gaming Challenge. The tournament follows the increasing trend of e-sports as a form of competition.
The Lethbridge College Kodiaks excelled not just in competition during the 2019-20 season, but in the classroom as well. A total of 49 Kodiaks student-athletes have earned CCAA National Scholar honours – the most of any ACAC institution, and second most in Canada.
The special efforts of a Lethbridge College Kodiaks soccer alumna mean the Kodiaks logo is now being proudly represented more than 11,000 kilometres away. Jill Brown personally delivered two complete Kodiaks soccer jersey kits to the Prisons Training School in Ghana earlier this year, during a trip to the Ghanaian capital of Accra.
In a surprise – but pleasant – twist, the Lethbridge College Kodiaks didn’t have to look far to find a coaching staff for its women’s basketball team. Deanna Simpson, the reigning ACAC south division coach of the year, will return to the team for the 2020-21 season with Ken McMurray as co-coach.
Nine Lethbridge College Kodiaks student-athletes have combined academics and athletics at the highest level, earning Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Academic All-Canadian honours. The CCAA considers the Academic All-Canadian award as its most prestigious honour.
The ACAC has named Todd Caughlin of the Lethbridge College Kodiaks as the 2019-20 ACAC Athletic Director of the Year. In his sixth season with the Kodiaks program, Caughlin was at the helm as the Kodiaks had one of the most successful seasons in program history.
The Lethbridge College Kodiaks celebrated an abbreviated athletics season with the annual KODI Awards on Wednesday evening. The awards capped an incredible season for Kodiaks Athletics that included one national championship, three ACAC championships and more than 60 ACAC and CCAA honours.
After three seasons at the helm of the Kodiaks women’s basketball program, Deanna Simpson has announced she is stepping down as head coach.
The Lethbridge College Kodiaks have medals on the mind as the 2020 ACAC Futsal Championships begin on Friday in Lloydminster. The women’s team is among the gold medal favourites at the championship tournament, while the men’s team comes into action as the reigning ACAC soccer champions.
