Zurrer inspiration for the next high school phenoms
It all began in 2003 with the awarding of the Cowichan News Leader Pictorial’s Youth Athlete of the Year Award to Emily Zurrer, pictured.
The soccer star also won the award in 2004. She continues playing today on the national women’s team and got admitted to the North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall of Fame last year.
There was no public banquet for the top youth athletes until 2009. Zurrer attended the 2011 luncheon at the Duncan Meadows Golf Club to speak to that year’s elite.
The invites have all been sent out for the next luncheon at Shawnigan Lake School when the best of 2013 will be honoured.
