Schedule Update – Special Birthday wishes to a special Jet – Yukio!

Vauxhall, AB –

The VAB weekend schedule has changed slightly.  The games on Saturday @ PBA have been changed from a DH to a single 9 inning contest starting at 2 pm.  The Jets will then take on the Badlands Academy Sunday @ 1pm DH in Vauxhall. 

The entire Jets organization, Vauxhall community members, VAB supporters and VHS staff were treated to a special event.  #1 Jets supporter Yukio Kitagawa and his wife Barbara were in Vauxhall to celebrate his 75th birthday.  Yukio treated the crowd to a special power lifting demonstration in the new weight room.  Yukio is a former Canadian weightlifting champion and thrilled the large crowd with his passion, dedication and athletic ability in the weight room.  Yukio was complemented by one of his first students dating back to 1960.  Lorne put his true strength on display and truely impressed everyone in attendance.  Yukio and his wife Barbara are true inspirations to our entire organization and we look forward to many more years as partners in developing our student-athletes on and off the field of play. In a special ceremony the weight room was officially named “Kitagawa Fitness Center!”
