The 2018 Sport Hall of Fame inductees include:
Karen (Fraser) Moore
A five-year member of the Dalhousie women’s volleyball team, Karen is one of the most highly-decorated volleyball players in Tigers history. A five-time AUAA all-star, she helped lead the Tigers to four conference championships and national gold (1982) and silver (1984) medals. The AUAA MVP in 1986, Karen was a three-time CIAU all-Canadian and was twice honoured as the Tigers women’s volleyball MVP in addition to earning Dalhousie’s female athlete of the year award at the end of the 1985-86 season.
Karen spent six years with Canada’s national team program, participating in many international events including the 1984 Olympics before moving on to coaching. She coached the Tigers women’s volleyball team for five seasons, leading them to four conference championship wins and moved on to later become Dalhousie’s Director of Athletics.
A member of the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame, Karen was previously inducted to Dalhousie’s Sport Hall of Fame as a member of the 1982 CIAU champion women’s volleyball team.
A breaststroke specialist, Chris is a five-time CIAU/CIS medal winner. He earned his first medal, a gold, in the 50m event, followed by a silver in the 200m at the 2000 championships. The next year, he claimed silver in the 50m and bronze in the 100m events. In his final national appearance, he and his teammates claimed bronze in the 400m freestyle relay.
In his five seasons, Chris earned 18 individual conference titles and was undefeated in the conference in both the 50m and 100m breaststroke events and set five AUAA/AUS and eight Dalhousie records over the course of his career.
The AUAA rookie of the year in 1998, Chris was a conference all-star in each of his five seasons and earned MVP status twice. A three-time Tigers men’s swim team MVP, Chris was named Dalhousie’s male athlete of the year at the end of the 1999-2000 season.
