huskies-logo100 memories... 100 moments... 100 Years of Huskie Athletics

Each Monday, Huskie Athletics will release a series of moments with the Top 10 being released at the Huskie Centennial Reunion Banquet March 31. Dig into your memory bank and share your greatest Huskie memories, stories, and photos because We Are All Huskies!

Videos for the moments can be viewed here: http://huskies.usask.ca/centennial/tophundred.php

Moment #13 – Record Smasher

Diane Jones won 11 conference championships in her career with the University of Saskatchewan track and field team. The two she won in her senior year in 1975 added an exclamation point. Competing in the conference meet in Edmonton, Jones smashed the Western Canadian record in high jump, and although she was hurt while jumping, she added her fifth straight championship in shot put. Jones was on the national team for almost 20 years, competed in two Olympics, and was twice named Canada's female athlete of the year.

Moment #57 – George Stands Tall

As a former goalie, Breanne George has a nose for the net with the University of Saskatchewan. George sometimes played goal when she was a kid growing up in Saskatoon. Forward is a better fit. Now in her fifth season with the Huskies, George is the team's all-time leader in points, goals and assists. She has been selected the MVP in the league. She was named an All-Canadian. At 5-foot-4, George stands tall.

Moment #70 – Howler is the Top Dog

Howler is the top Dog at the University of Saskatchewan. Howler is the mascot for the Huskies, who shows up at games in a furry grey costume and with happy feet. He dances. He gives high-fives. One of Howler's memorable moves came in a football game at Griffiths Stadium. When he jumped into a motor cart near the UBC bench and started to drive away, the cart snagged the cord attached to a headset worn by the Thunderbirds' coach. For a second, Howler almost pulled B.C.'s coach into the cart with him. A flag could have been thrown for illegal use of paws.

Moment #80 – Chalk It Up

Chalk it up to Tim Sedgewick. Sedgewick, from the University of Saskatchewan, won the all-around title at the Western Canadian university gymnastics championships in 1971 in Edmonton. He dominated. Sedgewick was first in vault, pommel and parallel bars and second in two other events. Tim's younger brother Neil finished second on the Huskies team. 1971 was also the year the Canada Winter Games were held in Saskatoon. Tim Sedgewick won one of Saskatchewan's four golds in the Games.
