Frank L. McKinnon Award
Karl has coached varsity boys basketball, golf, badminton, and track & field for over 35 years. His achievements as a coach were great, in particular, on the basketball court. He guided many student athletes to become better players, but more importantly better people. Over a six-year period from 2008 – 2014 the Westgate varsity boys basketball team captured four gold, a silver and a consolation championship. Karl received the Mike Spack Award from Basketball Manitoba in 2016.
Karl was instrumental in building an incredibly strong overall program as a sport administrator at Westgate Mennonite Collegiate. He has been there as a support for many teams but also as mentor to both coaches and parents. Karl was a constant presence at games, tournament and Provincial Championships and the athletes, coaches and parents could always depend on his sport experience to help make their seasons as smooth as possible.
