Berkhout, Darby '85 - Rowing
A Most Valuable player for the First Soccer team, two time Oarsmen of the year and winner of the Stotesbury, Canadian National, and Henley Royal Thames Cup Challenge Championships – and all that was just in high school. Darby took the next step in his athletic career on Canada’s west coast where he rowed at the University of Victoria and joined the Canadian National team. Over a four-year career, he competed at two World University games, the Commonwealth Games, the Pan Am Games, the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul. His greatest sport memory is a tie between winning the 1985 Men’s 8 at Schoolboy and walking into the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games.
