These athletes have shown resilience and results through intense training.
Rookies that deserve an honourable mention here are William Durban, Morgan Engi
and Kimberly Hersch, who all made CIS National Championships alongside a steady
bunch of senior stars.

Coaching
The swim team boasts a prestigious Coach of the Year award from the CIS
Championships. Need I say more of Mike Blondal?

Two Dinos ladies placed among the top eight scorers in the Alberta Collegiate
Athletics Conference: Melissa Barcelous and Tara Hammer. Goaltender Tonya Young
was named Most Valuable Player in the ACAC this year, probably helped by her incredible
role in getting the Dinos to the ACAC finals.

Head Coach Julie Healy took this team and brought the best out of them when
it was most needed. Après playoffs, Healy expressed her belief that the team

Shortly after being named CIS Female Athlete of the Week, Jessica Foltinek
tore her ACL. To make things worse, the third highest scorer in Canada West, Tanya
Hautala, injured her ankle during the run for a spot at nationals. Lindsay Maundrell
was another key player for the Dinos, representing on Canada West's scoring and
rebound charts.

Talent
The quality and quantity of both the depth and elite talent on this squad
are a testament to Kevin Boyles and the program he has built. With BLG Award nominee
Joanna Niemczewska leading the way, the Dinos had multiple threats at every position
all season long.

Coaching
The fact that Kevin Boyles has yet to win CIS Women's Volleyball Coach of
the Year award is a travesty. Oh well, Laurie Eisler can keep her personal accolades--Boyles
is happy with his championship ring.

Talent
I can't think of a word to describe this team's talent, so I'm going to make
one up. Amtifluecent. There, I said it. They had Jessica Zelinka, capturing two
golds, a silver and a bronze at the national championships earning herself CIS
Female Track and Field Athlete of the Year in the process.

Coaching
In short, Les Gramantik and Doug Lamont are very good at what they do, and
both have been honoured in the past for their efforts.

John Riad was the Dinos' brightest star, summoning all the experience and talent
his five years with the team provided. He led the team in points, placing fifth
in the league and was named a second team All Canadian.

Whit Hornsberger and Chris Wright also racked up their fair share of points, providing consistent production. Hornsberger was named CIS Athlete of the Week midseason and Wright was named to the tournament all-star team at nationals.

Talent
With the exception of Sean Kendal, this team lacks the elite talent required
to be a contender in national competition. With the departure of key players last
year, the team is relatively new and inexperienced. Now don't get me wrong, they're
a solid team, they just didn't possess enough extra pizzazz.

Coaching
Trust within the team was the big issue this year. Ryan was certainly frustrated
by this, but never managed to solve it. Hopefully he can find a way to turn this

Talent
Offensively the contributions by the departing players were great, highlighted
by team captain Sean Robertson finishing third in the league in points. Fifth-year
vets Ken McKay and Sheldon Nedjelski gave the Dinos a consistent attack throughout
the season.

There were injuries that affected the blueline this year, however, leaving the team shy a stopper who could shut down the other team's top forwards on a consistent basis.
