UFV Athletics showed off some venerable history last Saturday, hosting its first alumni event at the Envision Athletic Centre (EAC). Like the programs, the venue itself is a far cry from where the first Cascades squads played back in 1983 (before any current varsity athlete was born), and its presence shows the blistering trajectory Athletics has taken since UFV became a full university in 2008.
The event opened with a speech from UFV President Mark Evered, followed by free food and a volleyball clash between the UFV women’s squads and their alumni opponents. Only the first part of a semester-long 30th anniversary program, the next event on October 4 will celebrate UFV soccer as the women’s and men’s team take on Calgary and Victoria respectively.
