Along with naming the best female and male athletes, the event was also a chance for the students to say goodbye to Shane Collins, who has been the club’s pinnacle. Collins is retiring to pursue a career in photography.

“I have been volunteering and coaching the W.L Seaton Rock Climbing club for the past five years,” said Collins, who has found, “not only one but two amazing humans to take over now that I’ve stepped down.”
