Halifax Bantam AA Hawks are pleased to recognize Ian Wright, a key member of the team’s player support group for the 2012-13 competitive season.
Ian has been a Special Olympics athlete in Halifax for the past 21 years, competing in bowling, softball, floor hockey and basketball.
In February, 2012, Ian was selected to the Team Nova Scotia Floor Hockey Team that competed in the Canadian championships in St. Alberta, Alberta.
This marked Ian’s first time as a provincial team member. He and his teammates battled through a challenging competition and were rewarded with the bronze medals at the conclusion of the event.
Ian has also demonstrated prowess on the basketball court. He was a member of the gold medal championship team that took the top prize at the 2012 Special Olympics Nova Scotia Provincial Games in Antigonish last July.
These are just a few of Ian’s recent accomplishments during his years of dedication to sports. This stellar athlete’s long record of success was recognized in 2010 when he was named Athlete of the Year by Special Olympics Halifax, for which he was presented with the Danny Woods Award.
Along with his time in competitive athletics, Ian also donates much of his time to volunteer efforts.
Whether it’s selling Moosehead Programs, helping other athletes training to bowl, or as an official at floor hockey events, Ian has developed a reputation as a volunteer who can also be relied upon to give 100 per cent to help other athletes.
The Bantam AA Hawks salute Ian and thank him for his contribution to the players on our team.
He is surely our Number One Fan! Go Hawks Go!!!
