After a nearly 10 year hiatis, the President’s Cup was awarded on Saturday (Feb 15) at the TRU Gym. This was first year that the President’s Cup competition has been held between Thompson Rivers University and the University of British Columbia Okanagan. The President’s cup is awarded in competition between the two schools in soccer (men’s and women’s), volleyball (men’s and women’s), basketball (men’s and women’s) and golf (men’s and women’s).
The competition was originally between the old University College of the Cariboo and Okanagan University College (1993-2003).

TRU swept in men’s volleyball women’s basketball , split in men’s soccer and basketball, lost in men’s and women’s golf, was swept by UBCO in women’s volleyball and won and tied against UBCO in women’s soccer.
