The Ulster University Sports Union hosted its annual Colours Sports Awards Ceremony on Saturday (23rd May) at the Hilton Hotel in Belfast.
The gala ceremony celebrated and rewarded the achievements of both individual and sporting teams at the University. Jim Eastwood an Ulster University sports graduate and past contestant in the Apprentice series was the guest speaker.
Megan Frazer won the prestigious Silver Salver, which is awarded to sports-person of the year. Irish International Megan was recently awarded player of the match for her brilliant input into the Irish Senior Cup final; which the Ulster Elks won for the first time in the club’s history.
Megan works exceptionally hard at all times to improve her skill level, fitness and playing ability. She is recognised as standard bearer for women’s hockey in Ireland. She has twice been player of the tournament in the past year at international events. She is always encouraging her team mates and leads by example at all times.
When she plays she gives the team a lift and others enhance their ability when playing with her. The opposition nearly always set up specific plans to thwart her which rarely work and it also allows others freedom to play. All her team mates look to her for inspiration which she provides in abundance.
She nurtures the younger team members and because of her experience in the USA has been able to help the international scholars to bed in smoothly. She scored 17 goals this year playing 25 matches.
