"It's a very big honour, an amazing honour, I lived here for 19 years and I've come back to coach a few times and I've been here for the last four winters coaching ringette teams," said Sadoway.
 
Lazurek has equally impressive accomplishments, including coaching the Edmonton Wildcats, the University of Alberta Golden Bears football team and Salisbury High School football team. He also was the head coach for the Salisbury Senior Girls basketball program for 28 years and was apart of the coaching staff for the Grant MacEwan women’s basketball team for eight years.
 
The late Jack Bond, Blaine Manning and Kristina Schultz were recognized in the Athlete category.
