Tiger Recap: Faculty of Science Athletes Rebecca Haworth and David Sharpe

Posted by Faculty of Science on February 25, 2014 in students, All News

Rebecca Haworth earned her fourth AUS Female Student-Athlete Community Service Award in as many years, remaining the only person to receive the honour, since its inception. Haworth also claimed her fourth consecutive high jump title, jumping 1.78m to earn gold and set new AUS and Dal records. Haworth was also named the AUS women’s track athlete of the year to top it all off.

The Tigers swim teams travelled to the University of Toronto to compete in the 2014 Speedo CIS Swimming Championships, looking to make some noise as both teams were ranked in the top ten heading into the championships.

This also marked the end of David Sharpe’s illustrious career with the black and gold. Sharpe ended his career on a high note with a silver medal in the 50m backstroke, and a bronze medal in the 200m butterfly to go along with fourth and sixth place finishes in the 100m and 200m backstroke events. He won 13 CIS medals in his five-year career with the Tigers, including three gold, five silver and five bronze.
