Congratulations to Steve Mawhinney who on Feb.27 will enter the Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame. Below is the press release from the Hall of Fame:
Steve Mawhinney, basketball
Mawhinney has been a gym rat ever since he first started playing basketball in the 1970s at Marlborough elementary. Although his talent didn’t match his passion for the game, he began refereeing games when he was at Royal Oak junior high. And he still wears the zebra stripes on the hardwood. Mawhinney has refereed four B.C. high school senior boys championship finals and two girls provincial finals. He has been recognized as the winner of the Wink Willox Award for service, commitment and excellence in officiating by both Basketball BC and the Canadian Association of Basketball Officials.
