Keane wins university award for commitment

Bermudian Emma Keane has been awarded the Bob Anderson Trophy for her commitment to the University of Surrey squash club during the past three years.

Keane, the team president and captain for her first and third years at the university, beat off competition from nominees from the several other sports at the Colours Ball ceremony in Basingstoke last weekend.

The award was given to the nominee who had “shown the greatest commitment to their club over three years or more in terms of performance and/or administration”.

The 22-year-old, who was the first female elected to her role as president, said: “It was incredible to win the award and it was such a great feeling.

“It was really nice to have three years of hard work culminate in that and to be recognised. But it's really a team effort as I had great committees during both my years as president. Everyone won it together.”

Keane was also part of the women's first team that won the South Eastern 1A Division of British University and College Sport.

The former Warwick Academy pupil started playing squash at the Bermuda Squash Racquets Association when she was aged nine.

She plans to remain at the University of Surrey after graduating and work for its sports management team.

Incredible feeling: Bermudian Emma Keane is presented with the Bob Anderson award by the man himself at the University of Surrey Colours Ball at Hampshire Court Hotel in Basingstoke last weekend
