With #CHAMPSZN concluded, the countdown is on to the milestone 25th BLG Awards, set for Monday, May 1 at the Martha Cohen Theatre in Calgary.
The BLG Awards, sponsored by the national law firm, Borden Ladner Gervais, honours the best student-athletes in the country, drawn from the more than 12,000 student-athletes at 56 U SPORTS member institutions. As each school names its male and female athlete of the year, the list is whittled down the final eight - one from each of the four U SPORTS conferences. These elite student-athletes come to Calgary for a full weekend of activities, culminating in the awards show on May 1, 2017.
