Corunna’s Drouin named to the Indiana U Hall of Fame


Derek Drouin is being inducted to the Indiana University Hall of Fame.

The Corunna high jumper was one of the most dominant athletes to ever wear Hoosiers’ colours.

He is the only student-athlete to ever win five NCAA high jump titles – three indoor and two outdoor.

He also won seven Big Ten titles, was a seven-time All-American, and a three-time IU Male Athlete of the Year.

In his senior season in 2013, he won the Bowerman Award as college track and field’s top performer, regardless of event, as well as the Jesse Owens Big Ten Male Athlete of the Year.

Drouin, a graduate of St. Pat’s and a member of the Sarnia Athletics Southwest Track and Field Club, attended Indiana from 2010-13.

The Corunna product went on to win a bronze medal for Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and a gold medal in Rio at the 2016 Games.

The induction will take place at the Hall of Fame dinner in Bloomington, Indiana on September 22.
