The Department of Athletics, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary celebrations of Durham College have researched and come up with the 50 greatest achievements in Lords history.
These amazing achievements (in no particular order) are being announced starting in May and running until homecoming weekend in September.
We will also be putting together a commemorative magazine style book highlighting the achievements that will debut at the DC Sports Hall of Fame Induction ceremony on September 8th.
It was a tremendous exercise in history, nostalgia and memories for the committee in coming up with the 50 Greatest Achievements in Durham College athletics history. Achievements announced so far include:
Over 30 years of award winning Durham College summer sports camps
Augusto Duquesne: 42 points in the OCAA All-Star Game
