Numerous Recreation and Leisure Studies Students RECognized at the 2019-2020 Athletics Awards

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

The Waterloo Warrior athletes were recognized at the 2019-2020 Warriors Athletics Awards on Friday April 3, 2020. Typically, a banquet event, this year the awards were announced virtually through the @WlooWarriors Instagram account. The nominees for each award were posted earlier in the week and the winners were posted at varying times throughout the night. Teams had watch parties through various online platforms and even though they were not able to be in the same room together, still found ways to celebrate their teammates’ achievements.
