Simon Fraser University senior forward Erin Chambers (a graduate of Heritage Park secondary) was named the co-winner of Basketball B.C.’s Most Outstanding B.C. University Female Athlete award at the provincial organization’s annual Hall of Fame and Awards Gala in Langley.

The two-time All-American shared the honour with Kris Young of UBC.

Chambers was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference 2015 Player of the Year and West Region All-Region First Team after setting the GNAC all-time women’s scoring record and finishing third in NCAA Division II in scoring, averaging 23.5 points per game.

The senior finished her career as the leading scorer in GNAC history with 1,946 points, including a 41-point performance in a win over Saint Martin’s University on February. 14, 2015. It was the third highest single game point total in Simon Fraser history.

Chambers started 113 of 114 games over her four-year career.

Earlier this year Chambers was honoured by the university as co-winner of the SFU Female Athlete of the Year award along with middle distance runner Lindsey Butterworth.

Another Missionite to receive honours on the weekend was Joby McKenzie who was inducted into the Basketball BC Hall of Fame.

A graduate of Hatzic Secondary (she led the team to the B.C. High School AA Championship in 1994 and was named high school player of the year), McKenzie was recognized for her outstanding career at SFU. She led Simon Fraser to four trips to the NAIA National Championships during her time with the Clan.

McKenzie was inducted into the Basketball BC Hall of Fame, joining her dad Ken McKenzie who was inducted in 2008.
