Kodiaks headed to Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame
The Lethbridge College Kodiaks men's cross-country teams from 2005 and 2006, both national champions, will be inducted into the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame May 1.
Coached by Bertil Johansson, already a member of the hall of fame, the teams raced to dominance throughout the Alberta Colleges Athletic Association, before ending each season with the national title. The Kodiaks men's team won the national championship again in 2009; the women's team was second. Both won the ACAC team and individual titles. Lethbridge College's cross-country program has been a tower of strength for several seasons, notably for its contingent of student athletes from Kenya.
Bryan Jeannotte, veteran Lethbridge sports broadcaster, will be inducted in the Special Awards category. Besides his work in radio, Bryan is a long-time member of the Kodiaks family, serving during the years as both announcer and publicist.
The Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame induction dinner will be held at the Coast Hotel Banquet Centre. Tickets are available at City of Lethbridge box office locations in the Yates Theatre and the Enmax Centre.
