LANGLEY — It’s that time again, time to put the old notebook on hold for the course of the summer.Before we do, however, let’s take some time for reflection on the season past.
Today, as we begin our stretch drive of coverage, capping another season of high school and university sports coverage here at Varsity Letters, we begin an informal series of stories which the author feels best encapsulate the spirit of B.C.s community of student-athletes.
SURREY — Over a span of the past 10 years, think of names like Michael Messenger, Jamel Lyles, Caleb Abraham, and of course Derek Best.

NEW WESTMINSTER — Lucas Sabau admits that for a number of seasons, he struggled to find who he truly was on the football field.
Ryan Leslie, a former UBC Thunderbirds football player and New Westminster Hyacks coach, underwent surgery last week to remove an infection near his spine.

VANCOUVER — It came out of nowhere, and if you ask the winners, just in time, too. For them, it unfolded like a dream, so many seemingly odds-stacked moments joining hands, becoming a chain which kept pulling them in a single, unified direction.
