1988 Sun to B.C. hall…

The 1988 Okanagan Sun will be inducted next month into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame.

The induction ceremony will be held prior to the CFL game between the B.C. Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Oct. 10.

Coached by Lawrence Nagy, the Sun went undefeated during the 1988 regular season, before capturing the BCJFA Championship against the Richmond Raiders, then the Western Canadian championship against the Saskatoon Hilltops.

In their first-ever Canadian championship game appearance, they defeated the Burlington Tigercats by a 50-0 score.

The team was inducted into the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame in 2012
