David Vaillancourt, a 25-year-old student-athlete on Concordia’s alpine ski team died tragically Mar. 12 as a result of injuries sustained in a skiing accident.
Vaillancourt had been with the ski team since the 2004-05 season. After six races this season he was in 17th place out of 61 male skiers on the Quebec university circuit.
The funeral will take place on Monday, Mar. 19 in his hometown of Timmons, Ont.
Dr. Ed Enos died of heart failure early Tuesday, Mar. 6. He made significant contributions for more than 20 years to athletics at Concordia University and one of its founding institutions, Loyola College.
Enos was appointed Director of Athletics at Loyola in 1965 and immediately launched a progressive and wide-ranging program. When Loyola and Sir George Williams University merged in 1974 he became Concordia’s first athletic director.
The Quebec championship trophy in women’s hockey, which Concordia has won 19 times is named after Enos as well.
