IEach year in the fall the Delta Sports Hall of Fame Committee welcomes their newest members into Delta’s coveted Hall of Fame which is located in Delta on the left side of the walkway heading up to City Hall.

f you have never seen or possibly heard of this, take the time out of your schedule and take the time to introduce yourself to some of the inductees and you’ll won’t be disappointed!!

Delta has quality individuals who give their time and dedication to sport not for any recognition but rather to make sport rewarding for upcoming young athletes and in doing so it’s important that they get the recognition they truly deserve.

Sportswave will list this year’s award winners who go above and beyond to help grow their chosen sport for future generations.

We will start off and in no particular order while noting that the 2023 banquet will be held October 14th at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn.

Sport Champion -Youth Athlete Aidan Turner  

Aidan Turner is this year’s inductee for male youth sport champion for his exceptional performances in Track and Field. To describe Aidan as versatile is an understatement. 

In Track & Field he excels in sprinting, hurdles, long jump, high jump, shot put, pole vault, discus, javelin and decathlon. 

At last year’s BC Secondary Schools Track and Field Championships, Aidan finished second in the grueling decathlon event narrowly missing a top finish.

He broke the meet record in the pole vault with a winning leap of 4.85 metres, captured the 110 metre hurdles (14.27 seconds) and earned silver in the discus with a throw of 39.09 metres. 

Aidan was also named Most Inspirational Athlete at the event for a truly inspiring effort. 

The South Delta Secondary grad was also nominated for BC High School Male Athlete of the Year at the Sport BC’s 55th Annual Athlete of the Year Awards. 

He has built on that success by being awarded two-time Provincial Champion in both Long Jump and Pole Vault.

This spring, He became the U20 National Long Jump Champion at the Oregon Relays in Eugene.

Aidan can credit much of his success genetically and technically from his mother Michaela Colluney who has coached him for many years with his Richmond Kajaks club.

Aidan continues his love and pursuit of Track & Field excellence at Long Beach State University on scholarship. There Aidan, not surprisingly, is excelling in his studies of mechanical engineering.

The future is bright with Aidan and his immediate goals are to break the indoor heptathlon and outdoor decathlon U20 Canadian records.

She continues to umpire for the local Delta Falcons, Vancouver Women’s League, the Greater Vancouver Junior League and high school leagues in Vancouver and Tsawwassen. 

Corrie shares her knowledge and expertise by also coaching children, teens and adults in the South Delta community and Vancouver high school league.

Corrie got her start in field hockey as a grade 9 student at Gladstone Secondary in Vancouver. 

At the encouragement of her PE teacher, Liz Blake, Corrie developed a passion for field hockey, became a natural scorer and led her team to become City Champions. 

Corrie went on to play club hockey under the direction of Women’s National Team member Stephanie Jameson who helped develop Corrie’s skills and game understanding. 

Corrie also credits her coach John Lehmann of the Vancouver Hawks who refined her goal scoring skills and helped her become a leader in her division for 10 years. 

Paul Bundy, former Men’s National Team Coach also played a role in enhancing her technical knowledge of the game. 

Lastly, Corrie acknowledges her son Brendan, current National Men’s team member for helping her growth in the game and instilling in her the confidence to try out and be selected to the Canadian Over 60 Master’s Field Hockey team.
