TEAM - 1983 Schwartz Angels

The summer of 1983 was a heavenly experience for Lethbridge’s Schwartz Angels slo-pitch team. A colourful collection of offensive powerhouses and defensive dynamos, the Angels marched all the way to a national championship. Playing in the ultra-competitive Lethbridge slo-pitch league, considered by many to be one of the best leagues in Canada at the time, the Angels were battle tested by the time they won the Alberta Senior A Men’s Slo-Pitch Championships on their home field in Lethbridge.

BUILDER - Eunice David

Figure Skating

BUILDER - Eunice David

For nearly half a century, Eunice David has been the face of figure skating in Lethbridge. She is a hands-on volunteer, literally, as her introduction to the sport was helping to sew costumes when her children joined the Lethbridge Skating Club in the early 1970s. Within two years, she was elected to the club’s board of directors where she became a staple and a guiding force for much of the next 37 years.

Volleyball

BUILDER - Howard Rasmussen

Howard Rasmussen is as close to a resident expert in southern Alberta volleyball as one will find. His coaching career started in Drumheller in 1972 when he took off the fall semester from university. He coached the high school boys’ volleyball team to a provincial championship, and he was hooked on coaching from that point on.

Nico Pasquotti

Nico Pasquotti’s scoring exploits on the soccer pitch are no surprise to Lethbridge fans who have watched him throughout his career – but in 2019 a whole new audience was exposed to what the 24-year-old winger is capable of.
