Sandy’s dedication, passion, and contributions to the sport of volleyball have been recognized with her inductions into the Halls of Fame of both Volleyball BC and Volleyball Canada.
As a ProMOTION Plus In Her Footsteps Honouree, Sandy has also been recognized for her significant contributions to providing opportunities for women and girls in physical activity and sport in BC.

The UBC Women’s Volleyball program has been named the most successful U SPORTS program in the last 20 years, with more National Championship appearances and medals than any other program in the country, including its most recent National Championship in 2019.
