You can help shape the second class of the Lethbridge College Kodiaks Hall of Fame. Anyone is welcome to nominate the past athletes, coaches, teams and builders who have left their mark on Kodiaks Athletics at any point in the past 60+ years.

Nominations are open from now until June 30 on the Kodiaks website at gokodiaks.ca/kodiakshalloffame.

“There have been countless people throughout the years who have helped build the Kodiaks program and deserve hall of fame consideration,” says Todd Caughlin, manager of Kodiaks Athletics. “Lethbridge and southern Alberta have been witness to these successes and we want their help to create a strong pool of nominees for this year’s induction class. Nominating is easy and is a great chance to help recognize those who you think have stood above the crowd over the years.”

The Kodiaks Hall of Fame was created in 2017, with an inaugural class of four athletes, three coaches and five teams. This year’s hall of fame class will be recognized on Nov. 22 and 23 as the Kodiaks host both volleyball and basketball games as part of alumni weekend.

The hall of fame is made possible by the support of the Kodiaks Association, a group of boosters who support the Kodiaks through fundraising and community-building initiatives.

More information, induction criteria and information on the 2017 class of inductees is available on the Kodiaks website.

Athletics at Lethbridge College began in 1957 and the Kodiaks have gone on to earn 60 ACAC championships and 21 national championships, while producing 65 Academic All-Canadians.
