Shoes Made for Walking

On-Court Adjustments

After attending a UBC Men's Volleyball practice, we have two interviews to share! First, Coltyn Liu and Michael Dowhaniuk talk about how they've dealt with the cancelled season, and how they're preparing for next year. Then, Coach Mike Hawkins talks about how he's had to change up what he's doing from a coaching perspective, and the challenges that has entailed.

On-Court Adjustments

A Big Swing

Cory sits down with UBC Men's Golf star Ethan de Graaf to discuss his time at UBC, how he’s handled the big changes to competitions this season, and nearly breaking the school single-round record the other week. Also, Thunderbird athletes were honoured virtually for their academic achievements, and before the province's new health guidelines were put in place there was some long-awaited action for the UBC Women's Hockey team.

Making a Splash

On this week's episode, we hear from the head coach of one of UBC's most dominant programs: swimming! Derrick Schoof sat down with Alan and Byron to discuss his beginnings as a coach, what it's like coaching such a strong team, and his time as one of the head coaches for Team Canada. Also, women's golf continued to roll, and while the men's team didn't reach the same heights as a collective, one individual had quite a stellar week.

One Sport is not Enough!

What's better than playing a varsity sport at UBC? How about playing two? Jake sat down with Jessica Williams of UBC women's soccer & track and Sophia Kramer of women's soccer & basketball to discuss what it's like being a dual-sport athlete, and the benefits and challenges that decision entails. Elsewhere, UBC golf continued their BC series with a pair of rounds, women's soccer played another exhibition match, and Canada West made a major (and sad) announcement on the status of second semester sports.
