EDMONTON – Former CIS Men's Soccer Player of the Year Nick Perugini has taken his place in the Canada West Hall of Fame.

Perugini was announced as the latest inductee Tuesday, as CW continues to celebrate 100 years of university sport in Western Canada.

The former Trinity Western Spartan defender was a standout between 2003 and 2007. Perugini started his career by being named the CW Rookie of the Year, and was a conference first team all-star between 2004 and 2007.

He capped off his career in 2007 by being named the conference's top player as well as the national player of the year.

Perugini was key to Trinity Western's three-consecutive Canada West titles between 2005 and 2007, which also included national medals in 2006 (silver), and 2005 (bronze).

ABOUT THE CANADA WEST HALL OF FAME

For the last century, organized university sport has been a central part of the student experience at institutions across Western Canada. Beginning with the University of Manitoba capturing the first Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (WCIAU) men's hockey banner in 1919-20, student-athletes have been competing to reach their full potential in sport and the classroom, while enriching campus life. 

To commemorate 100 years of university sport across Western Canada, the Canada West Hall of Fame was created in the spring of 2019, with the first induction class set to be unveiled throughout the 2019-20 season.
