NLSA AGM this weekend in St. John’s

All three executive members who have completed a two-year term will seek re-election when the Newfoundland and Labrador Soccer Association holds its 2013 annual general meeting this weekend in St. John’s.

The meeting is scheduled for the Comfort Inn and starts Friday night.

President Doug Redmond of St. John’s, youth vice-president Judi Kelloway of Burin and secretary Dave LeGrow of Mount Pearl have completed the second year of their two-year terms and are seeking re-election.

Senior male vice-president Gordon Dunphy, senior female vice-president Jeff Tiller and treasurer Dave Kirby are entering the second year of their two-year terms and do not require re-election.

About 60 soccer delegates from all areas of the province are expected to attend the meeting. Detailed reports on all aspects of the organization’s 2013 operations will be tabled and discussed.

A Saturday night banquet, held in conjunction with the meeting, will feature the induction of seven new members of the provincial Soccer Hall of Fame and presentations to the 2013 provincial award winners.

The Hall of Fame inductees include Telegram sports reporter John Browne, Harry Hickman, Cecil Noseworthy, Bob Perks, Louis Quedinet, Gus Richards Jr. and Glenn Stanford.

MUN's Dyke won four silvers, not three

Because of incorrect information provided to The Telegram, it was reported Monday that Memorial University Sea-Hawks swimmer Gavin Dyke won three silver medals at the first Atlantic University Sport swim meet of the season at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

He, in fact, won four silver medals in freestyle races. Dyke’s times of 51.34 in the 100m, 3:53.75 in the 400m, 1:53.41 in the 200m and 15:45.44 in the 1500m all put him on the podium, and were all significant improvements over his preliminary qualification times.

For his efforts, Dyke was named Memorial’s athlete of the week.

The female athlete of the week is volleyball player Kirsten Sorensen. She helped Memorial beat the Acadia Axewomen twice on the road this weekend, racking up 74 assists, six kills, 13 digs, four block assists and nine service aces.

Sorensen currently leads the AUS with 219 assists.
