Kingston Gold for SVR Major Atom AA By Carrie Seguin

O

ver the weekend of January 12-14, the Major Atom AA Seaway Valley Rapids competed in the Taylor Hall Cup Classic, an AAA tournament hosted in Kingston, Ontario. After round-robin play and a semifinal win, the Rapids claimed the cup in a nail-biter championship game. Tournament play began on Friday versus the North York Knights. The Rapids gave no mercy to the Knights, beating the team with a lopsided score of 9-2. Shortly afterward, the Seaway team faced off against the Upper Ottawa Valley Aces, a team from the same AA loop. Although the Aces scored one early in the first period, the Rapids took over control of the match and skated away with the 6-2 win. On Saturday, the SVR team met up against home team, the Kingston Junior Frontenacs. The match-up was quite intense with both teams defending their zone well. The Rapids were the first to score; putting one past the Frontenac goalie early in the second period. However, the Kingston team rebounded and tied the game up toward the end of the same period. During the third, neither of the teams’ goalies gave up chances, and the final score remained a 1-1 tie. Later on Saturday, the Rapids competed against the Ottawa Sting, another team from the OEMHL league. Just prior to

the tournament, the two teams had faced off during regular season play – the game was intense, with back-and-forth scoring and numerous penalties. The Sting ended up taking that game from the Rapids, and so redemption was on the agenda for this tournament match-up. The Rapids scored first and led 1-0 at the end of the first 15 minutes. After two periods, the score remained close with SVR ahead 3-2. With just minutes left in the final phase, the Rapids clinched the win with a fourth goal, ending the game 4-2.

With a 2-0-1 record, the SVR team earned a spot in the semi-final round, meeting up against the Quinte Red Devils early on Sunday morning. The game remained scoreless until late in the first when the Red Devils broke through the Rapids defence, taking a 1-0 lead. The Rapids bounced back scoring two in the second period, but the Quinte team also marked a point, and the game was tied 2-2 heading into the final stage of the game. The Red Devils took over the lead 3-2, but the Rapids did not fold and they notched three goals of their own, taking back the lead and winning the game 5-3. This win guaranteed the SVR team a spot in the championship round. Ironically, the SVR team found themselves matched up against league competition, the Gloucester Rangers. To date, play between the two teams has consistently been even,

Back Row (L-R): Pascal Paquette (assistant coach), Miguel Delisle (head coach), Nico Addy, Scott “Butter” Thompson (assistant coach) Middle Row (L-R): Hunter Thompson, Dean Fawthrop, Bennett Harty, Matteo Dixon, Warren Lalonde, Alex Delormier, Parker Thompson, Max Dube, Tristan Delisle Front Row (L-R): Tristan Paquette, Noah Lafleur, Ayden Baumann, Photo Submitted Chancey Novosad, Logan Villeneuve, Eli Seguin with the Rapids skating away with two close wins and a tie during the regular season. Tournament play between the two teams proved to be no different. At the end of the first period, SVR led 1-0. During the second period, the Rapids found the net four more times – but the Rangers found it 5 times and the score was tied at 5 going into the third period. The Seaway team rallied and scored a tiebreaker during the final moments

of the third and then clinched the win with a final goal with just seconds remaining in regulation time. Kim Strba and Steve Hall, parents of New Jersey Devils Taylor Hall, presented the championship cup to the Major Atom Rapids. Hall hails from Kingston, where he played minor hockey up until he was drafted into the OHL by the Windsor Spitfires in 2007.

This was in 1979,” recalls Juneau. “In 1980 I took my trampoline certification and I never stopped after.” Juneau is now a certified master course conductor (learning facilitator) level 3 in trampoline.

MVP of the Month Ashley Stratton Hometown: Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador

School: Ontario Hockey Academy Grade: 12 Age: 17

“I love the competition that hockey provides. As well, through hockey I have met some amazing people and have made friendships that will last a lifetime,” says this month’s MVP Ashley Stratton. This team captain was selected as MVP by her coaches and peers because she is a strong leader. “She hates to lose and makes those around her better players,” says Coach Brad

Nicholson. This young athlete has high praise for her coaches, teachers, and team: “OHA has given me the opportunity to develop and mature both as an athlete and as a person. Three years at OHA has provided me with an excellent education and an amazing hockey experience. The OHA coaches and staff continue to provide me with the challenges that I enjoy.” She plays either wing and is strong offensively and defensively, according to Coach Nicholson. Ashley enjoys chemistry. In September of 2018 she will attend the University of New Brunswick to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree, which she plans to eventually turn into a career in healthcare or education. She’ll be busy with hockey, too: She’ll be playing with the UNB Varsity Reds.

He won the Canadian National Championship twice in the under two-litre sedan/sports car division. During this time Graham was the Service Manager for the Quebec car dealership for Volvo, Fiat, and Lotus. Graham and his wife, Linda, moved from Montreal to Alexandria where they raised their family. During this time he coached and managed an AA hockey team and was on the board for minor hockey. His hockey affiliation lasted about ten years. Graham and Linda continued to alpine ski and introduced their children, Jason and Lori, to the sport at a young age. Their favourite hills were Morin Heights and St. Sauveur. During the school March Break, for over ten years, the family would participate in the Snow Eagle Ski School at the Grey Rocks Resort, Tremblant. Graham’s career changed to senior buyer for Wonder Bra Canada with his office in Montreal. Then he was offered V.P. of Sales and Marketing for Britex, with its sales office in Montreal and their factory in Nova Scotia; an exciting career that took Graham to many North American and European cities. During these years Graham continued to be active in sports. When he found out about OSGA 55+ events in District 8 he became interested. Graham joined the Board in 2010 and has held the treasurer, president, and past-president positions. He is the convener for prediction cycling, alpine skiing, and golf and continues to compete in horseshoes, cribbage, curling, and golf. Graham has won medals in both prediction cycling and alpine skiing. He believes organizations such as O.S.G.A.55+ need to promote themselves as the way to grow older gracefully. By keeping fit we live longer, enjoy life more, and continue to meet like-minded people at our social events. He said there are more seniors over the age of 65 in Ontario than under the age of 15, so we shouldn’t be alone in our quest to keep fit as we age. Graham is a great promoter of O.S.G.A. 55+, District 8. If you are interested in more information about this organization please check out our Facebook page at OSGA55+district8-SDG, Prescott, Russell, and Akwesasne for events and photos of past competitions or contact District Coordinator, Marlene Neal at nealm221@ sympatico.ca for more information.

When he would defend himself verbally there were a couple individuals who got physical with him.

What hurts more? Looking at yourself in the mirror everyday knowing you ran and hid and caved in to your fear or being physically hurt? You decide when you’ve had enough.

man did not run or cower and take it. He fought back best as he could and made a decision to go down fighting. Well to his great surprise he did not go down this time and held his own and never gave up. It was enough to repel the attack and he was suspended but very proud. In coming days the ridicule diminished and the constant hazing ceased. That young man started walking a little taller, even looking people in the eye. He went to school and kept exercising.

It wasn’t always easy but running and hiding in shame and fear were not the answer. I am proud I contributed a little to that. The young man did the rest. Sometimes in life we have to fight and face our fears. Be it bullies, fear, what others think; on the job, in school, or cancer. You fight, you never give up on yourself and who you can be — and never let others decide what you can or cannot be or do. Yours in Combat Arts Jorge Luis

CBC News in Edmonton recently ran a story about a 10-year-old player who has been “Suspended Indefinitely” by Hockey Alberta for playing on two teams in two different leagues. It appears one team is sanctioned by Hockey Canada and one team is not. What are your thoughts panel?  Should a 10-year-old child be allowed to play hockey outside of a Hockey Canada sanctioned team without being penalized by Hockey Canada?

Sports Energy Greater Cornwall & Areas Community Sports Newspaper

Gilles Gaudet - Sports Enthusiast -Was it really necessary for Hockey Canada to suspend a 10-year-old without giving him an opportunity to decide between the two clubs? They were probably a little heavy-handed.  That being said, when his parents decided to enlist him in another league, they knew that they were breaking the rules, so they are the real culprits here.  Too many times parents put undue pressure on their children, with unrealistic expectations, in the name of their own self-gratification.  Hockey Canada has rules in place: without those rules, it would be a free for all, with players playing on multiple teams, probably cutting ice time for other kids who want to play.  So to the parents, who think that their child is the next Bobby Orr or Hayley Wickenheiser, relax a little.  Ask your child who they’d like to play for, and set the example by following the rules set out by organizations.  Now Hockey Canada should ask the 10-year-old where he’d like to play and then re-instate him, if he decides on Hockey Canada. Jake Lapierre - Conditioning Coach -In reading the CBC’s news article regarding this story my initial knee jerk reaction was “shame on Hockey Alberta for punishing the little 10-year-old hockey player for just wanting to play hockey” but then thought CBC is only reporting half the facts and 10-year-old kids don’t get suspended for trivial reasons. Hockey Canada prides itself in developing guidelines to ensure all players have a meaningful, enjoyable experience, to assist boys and girls to achieve their highest levels possible and to assist in a proper way that provides a better chance for individuals to reach those levels. These guidelines are also structured for the safety, protection, and wellbeing of every player member registered. Hockey Alberta, who is governed by Hockey Canada, falls under that umbrella and is sanctioned under the same guiding principles and yes, there are strict rules in place that might seem unfair but are in place to protect players, coaches, volunteers, and the organization. Team Revolution Hockey has the opportunity to register with Hockey Alberta but chooses to not too because there are too many rules and operates as a rogue league independent of Hockey Canada; its branches, and access to national insurance programs that protects the players. Hockey Alberta’s rules are clear on unregistered leagues and failing to follow the guidelines does forfeit registration with Hockey Alberta. Is Hockey Alberta being heavy handed; I don’t believe so — but a group of parents are choosing not to follow the rules and guidelines. Jim Riddell - Seaway Karate Club - A ten year old boy from Calahoo AB has been suspended by Hockey Alberta for playing in two different leagues at the same time. The second team involved is not registered or sanctioned by Hockey Alberta and is referred to as a “super team”. This “elite” team plays some games against eight other similar Alberta teams, and competes in weekend tournaments both in and out of province. On the surface it looks like Hockey Alberta is running a dictatorship and this ten-year-old boy is a victim of their rules. What about his Calahoo teammates and coaching staff? Is it fair to them that when they are playing weekend games, entering their own tournaments, or making a run for the playoffs that their best player may be off playing for his other team? This rule could possibly use a bit of revision but it is there for a reason and it is one that this child’s parents should have been aware of at the time of registration.

Car Dealer Stephen Daye Gives Us the Inside Scoop on the New 2018 Ram 1500 Sport Hydro Blue Pearl Edition. By Molly Kett

L

ocal car dealer Stephen Daye has a passion for cars and sports. He cheers for the Ottawa Senators when he watches hockey and the Blue Jays when he watches baseball. When it comes to playing sports, Daye played hockey in the Long Sault house league for three years. When he was seven, his father opened Stephen Daye Karate School. He studied Shorin Ryu Full Contact Karate for eleven years and taught the junior class for three years. Now, Daye spends much of his time focusing on the latest and greatest in the car industry. In June of 2011, Daye joined Notman Chrysler as a sales specialist. In 2017, he was promoted to floor manager. In February of 2017 the Riverside group from Brockville and Prescott purchased Notman Chrysler.

“I have to say the new ownership group has been great,” says Daye. “June 2017 saw a transition to a new management team focused on providing extraordinary customer service and putting the customer first and doing whatever we can to make the experience here pleasurable. We make

sure to go above and beyond for all of our customers.” One of Daye’s favourite parts of the job is the relationships that grow with the customers. “We don’t just sell vehicles here, we sell memories and we sell experiences,” says Daye. “I don’t know how many people tell me they are going to miss their trade-in. I make sure that I ask the right questions in order to get people into their dream vehicle; that best suits their needs.” The car that’s currently impressing Daye, is the brand new 2018 Ram 1500 Sport Hydro Blue Pearl Edition. “This truck is in the running as M.V.P,” says Daye. “Right out of the box, Ram 1500 shows it true colors, because body colour is just about everywhere. You’ll find it on the fresh exterior design with the new RAM badge.

Mated to the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission this truck has never been more fuel-efficient.” Daye says that the new Ram has keyless entry and go, automatic high beam headlights, rain sensing windshield wipers, and remote start just to name a few options. “Staying connected is what makes every drive in the Ram 1500 so good. For 2018, Uconnect is taken to the next level, with upgraded apps and the latest technology. Voice commands can control just about everything,” says Daye. “You can make a hands free call, send a text, access a favorite playlist or even ask for directions to a certain address all with a simple voice command. Ram’s

8.4-inch touchscreen is the largest of all manufacturers.” The blue colour of the Ram means that it stands out in a crowd. “Ram’s promise is to deliver ease of operation and the highest degree of occupant comfort, keeping you and your family safe and secure. Early morning hockey games in a snowstorm? No problem getting there,” explains Daye. “Tons of storage, from in-floor storage bins, under seat storage bins and a large box with new pick up box LED lighting. There is a lot of space for all of those hockey bags, sports gear, or even a 4-wheeler. With a huge back seat you can fit 3 growing children easily. And let’s not forget the extreme comfort up front for Mom and Dad.” Daye clearly has a passion for helping families pick cars that perfectly fit their needs. Interested?

Lacrosse: It’s in the Blood By Casey Leger

M

ichael Benedict Junior’s lacrosse resume is impressive. He made a living at it, playing professionally from 1995 to 2003. His pro career included stints with the Rochester Knighthawks, the Syracuse Smash, the Buffalo Bandits, the NY Saints, the Columbus Landsharks, the Ottawa Rebels, and the NJ Storm. He won a National Championship in ’97 and the President’s Cup in ’95 with the Akwesasne Thunder, and again in 2011 with the St. Regis Braves. “After seven knee surgeries, I was pretty much done,” he laughs.

Bantam Lacrosse Championships last season.

Judging by the crowd of teens and tweens decked out in lacrosse gear waiting for Mike Jr. to take to the turf at the Benson Centre at 8:30 on Friday nights, the Benedict skills camp is a hit. And this is its first year of operation. “We usually get anywhere from 20 to 25 kids out in a night,” he figures. “It’s a casual operation. The kids pay $20 a session and there’s no official registration.” The speed, the action, the hitting, and the highlight reel goal scoring: that’s what draws athletes to lacrosse, according to Mike Jr. He’s on to something. Lacrosse in Cornwall and in Akwesasne is booming. While Cornwall boasts the Junior C Celtics, Akwesasne has the Junior B Indians. What’s more, Akwesasne boasts roughly two teams per level of competition from tyke on up.

Now, Michael Jr. is running the Benedict Skills and Shooting Camp, but it’s not so much a business as it is an act of devotion. Mike Jr. is the second generation of his family to play the sport; his father, the original Michael Benedict, is a Hall-of-Famer, and his son, Michael Given its current popularity, the III, is a goaltender with the Akwesasne Storm Minor Lacrosse Association, and Benedict Skills and Shooting Camp is he was selected to play in the Canadian sure to become a local off-season fixture.

Patrick Campeau Talks Multisport By Molly Kett

F

orty-three-year-old Patrick Campeau was born and raised in North Lancaster and grew up playing hockey, like most young Canadian boys. Campeau, though, played all the way up to the Central Junior A level with the Nepean Raiders. Now, Campeau lives with his wife and two children, but athletics are still very much a part of his life.

“With family, work, and overall life commitments not letting me keep up with my hockey passion, I needed to find a replacement to stay active,” says Campeau. “My daughter, Geneviève, was a competitive swimmer at the time with the Cornwall Sea Lions and we decided to sign up for the Cornwall Tri as a relay team where she would swim, I would be doing the bike portion of it and my niece Elizabeth would do the running. I bought myself a pretty standard road bike and started riding.  I never expected to get as hooked as I did… Photo Submitted having met Tanya Deeks from “Unleash the Beast Multisport Coaching” through “extremely lucky to have such a strong Genevieve, I quickly started following her group in a community this size.” programs and her swim classes in order to Campeau says that even when he doesn’t speed up the learning process.” feel like being challenged at his training Campeau is incredibly grateful for Tanya program, the other members are always and her program. there and ready to push their limits, which “She has been able to take a 250 lbs out- often inspires him to do the same. of-shape dreamer and get him to complete “The spirit of the camaraderie is by far a half Ironman race in Lake Placid last the most rewarding part of the multisport September without any injuries or hiccups club. There is always an event or a along the way.  It was a very rewarding colleague training somewhere nearby that process and has completely changed my can help encourage you get through your lifestyle at this point,” shares Campeau. next workout or race,” says Campeau.

seeing how far your body can take you. This group certainly makes the pushing the limit part at least a little bit more enjoyable than it would be otherwise!”

Campeau has decided to focus his 2018 season on running only, so he can improve his running pace and return to the triathlon world in 2019. “It is also a bit less of a time commitment than training for all three and makes it a bit easier on my family and work balance. The end goal for 2018 is to qualify for the famous Boston Marathon but anybody that has ever attempted knows very well how difficult that is,” says Campeau.  “Regardless, I would like to keep that as the carrot for the year and see where my legs take me.” Campeau truly sees the multisport club as a large benefit to the community. It keeps people healthy and motivated while encouraging friendships. He says that the club builds a reputation, bringing people in from unexpected places. “Our Cornwall Triathlon and our Cornwall Run to End MS races are two events that have now grown to a level where restaurants, hotels, and others are starting to see positive benefits as well,” shares Campeau.

Campeau believes that the club is a positive place to reach your personal goals.

“In the end, it’s important that everybody realizes that as much as it’s a cliché, everybody has their own personal goals and it really doesn’t matter what the person next to you is doing,” says Campeau. “There will always be somebody who is faster and who is running a longer race than you are. Get Campeau is an incredibly proud member “Everybody has different goals but overall out there and make today’s workout better of the Cornwall Multisport Club and feels this is all about pushing your limits and than the one you did yesterday!”

TIME TO THINK ABOUT

Spring...

Any Season is Fishing Season for Kelsey Lemire By Molly Kett

F

orty-year-old Kelsey Lemire works hard and fishes hard. When Lemire isn’t working at Rona, when the weather is right for it, you can probably catch him, catching fish. Lemire has been fishing since a very young age. His parents owned a cottage in Lancaster, so he was raised fishing and boating in the area, quickly getting a passion for it. “I love fishing because it’s very relaxing. Spending time on the water, the challenge of trying to figure out where the fish are that day and what type of mood they are in depending on weather conditions,” explains Lemire. “It’s almost in some cases like solving a puzzle, when you put all the right elements together you can have a great day of catching fish, not just fishing.” One of his earliest fishing memories go back to when he was a young lad, looking forward to fishing and learning every chance he could. My earliest fishing memory is my dad and grandmother taking me fishing with them every weekend,” shares Lemire. “They taught me something new every time we went out.” Now, he has been passing his love for fishing onto the next generation, like his father and grandparents did for him. “My fondest fishing memory is teaching my two daughters how to fish and enjoy the outdoors,” says Lemire. “Also, spending time [fishing] with my grandmother.”

Lemire may catch a lot of great fish, but like most great fishermen, is reluctant to share the secrets of his success. “My favourite place to fish is near home here in the St. Lawrence valley. Sorry! Can’t tell you exactly where, it’s a secret,” jokes Lemire. What would he tell those who may be thinking of giving fishing a try, but aren’t sure just yet? “It’s a great pastime that can cost very little or as much as you are willing to invest,” says Lemire. “It brings people of all ages and backgrounds together to have fun.”

NGS Novice C Braves Win The Attributes: Balance ‘A’ Title in Carleton Place

By Jim Riddell, Seaway Karate Club

I

n the past few issues we have looked at the attributes, or components of karate that all serious practitioners should strive to improve. Each of these components is an individual stand-alone attribute but they all work hand in hand with each other. So far we have looked at speed, power, and timing; each very important components that can be enhanced by improved balance. It doesn’t matter how fast and strong you are, or how mechanically correct your kicks and punches are, without proper balance they will never reach maximum effectiveness. Balance relates to your centre of gravity, which is the balance point in your body. For most of us that point is located in the lower part of our upper body. Your centre of gravity can be raised or lowered depending on how your weight is shifted in various stances. For example, a horse riding stance has a lower centre of gravity than a high narrow stance and is therefore more stable. While a low stance may be more stable, it lacks the mobility of higher stances. A stance may be very stable in an attack from one direction but unbalanced in another direction. As a student moves up through the belt ranks he / she, with the help of the instructor will identify efficient movement controlling the centre of balance allowing for smooth and proficient technique. Continued repetitions will improve every aspect of karate - kicks, punches, self-defence, sparring, and kata. When punching, the knee should be slightly bent with both feet planted and pushing off against the floor. A slight lean in the direction of the punch will add body weight to the strike but care must be taken not to over extend. It is a little more difficult to maintain proper balance while kicking, because when the kick is executed the bodyweight must be directly over the supporting leg. During the kick, one’s foundation is only as wide as the foot that you are standing on. For this reason, in both self-defence and sparring situations, one of the best times to displace your opponents balance is when they are on one leg. If your balance has gotten a bit “out of shape” there are many drills to help get it back. Here are a few simple ones: 1) Take a forward stance with your eyes closed and hands in on guard position. Very slowly raise your right leg and extend it into a front kick. You will feel your muscles making little adjustments to keep you from falling over – those are the ones that you are conditioning with this drill. Your arms should not wave. (3-one minute reps with each leg.) 2) Take a forward stance with your eyes closed and your hands in the on-guard position. Raise your right knee so your thigh is parallel with the floor, then slowly lean to the front, then to the back and then side to side. (3 reps of 30 seconds with each leg) 3) In a forward stance with your hands up and your eyes open very slowly throw a front kick, retract the leg, chamber, and slowly throw a sidekick, retract, chamber, execute a roundhouse kick, then a back kick; all without putting the kicking foot back on the floor. If this is no problem you can add a crescent kick followed by a hook kick. (1 set of 10 reps with each leg]. Balance is a very important but often overlooked component of Karate the good news is that with some balance drill training it can be quickly and easily improved.

Athlete of the Month Matthew Briggs

Hometown: Clayton, New York School: Ontario Hockey Academy Age: 17 Grade: 12

“The one special thing about Matthew is he comes to play every game the same way,” says OHA U18 coach Brent Loney. Matthew Briggs plays hard: He has scored 5 goals for OHA in his last two games, including one short-handed and two power play markers. Matthew is the team captain. “His competition level is amazing, and he leads by example every shift,”

says Coach Loney. This young skater plays right wing and can step in at centre when the occasion demands. For Matthew, the best part about playing hockey is how he gets to travel and see different parts of the world. One thing he particularly likes about playing and studying at OHA is he gets to meet and play with people from all over the world. Along with his hockey aspirations, this team captain and aspiring engineer is attaining his academic goals and hopes to play for and graduate from a D 1 school in the states. He believes hockey will be an important part of his life, whatever he does.

The day-long event will feature 39 teams and 500-plus competitors from across Ontario and Quebec, including Niagara, London, Waterloo, Toronto, and Ottawa. The higher-level teams (Levels 5 and 6) will be vying for a bid to attend the world championships in Orlando later this year. It marks the first time that an event of this nature is being held at the Civic Complex. “We’re excited to host our first event in Cornwall,” said Tara Savoie, Ontario Cheerleading Federation President. “The Civic Complex is a great venue for this type of event and the new location will add another level of excitement to the competition.” The OCF team has been working with

City officials for several months now to plan for the event.

“We are proud to be hosting this event,” said Janice Robinson, Facility Rental Coordinator. “It’s another example of just how versatile the Civic Complex is for special events. It also builds on Cornwall’s growing status as a premier location for hosting sporting events and conferences.” Catch the action! Interested residents can take in the sights and sounds of the competition. The event will run from 10:30 am to 5 pm, with the doors opening at 9 am. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children (ages 6-12) and seniors. The arena floor inside the Civic Complex will be split in half with the action taking place on a spring competition floor before a panel of judges. About the Federation

Admittedly, it’s a last resort, but according to Ferguson, it’s rarely needed. “Our students “Students who excel on the our generally here to work hard ice are often the same ones who off the ice and on it,” he adds. that are unique and specific to their students. The students can opt for courses like Sports Marketing and Hockey Career and Leadership. Ferguson is also quick to point out that OHA has small class sizes compared to many other schools.

ASK THE COACH

Michael Benedict III

Grade: 9 School: Massena Central High School Sport: Lacrosse Question: to lacrosse coach and trainer Michael Benedict Jr.

Why did you start playing lacrosse?

Answer: I started playing because my father played, and he was very good at it. My dad, Michael Benedict, is in the Akwesasne and Ontario Halls of Fame. He was a forward. He passed away on November 17, 2017. They called him “The man with a thousand moves”. I started playing lacrosse after watching my dad play and wanted to be just like him. He taught me everything I know. I owe my career and love for the game to my dad. Now my son plays. He’s a goaltender. Lacrosse is a Benedict family tradition. It’s in our blood. It’s why I stay involved.

ell it’s that time of year again. A huge portion of the population is thinking of change. A change in mindset, perhaps? A lifestyle change? Could be. But let’s face it — most are thinking a change in body. One industry that knows this and capitalizes upon it is the fitness industry.     As we sit and self-reflect on what we aspire to change, what we wish to accomplish, local gyms, and weight loss centres start to push (scratch that) shove their diets and products into our face. They commence the game of playing on people’s emotions with false claims and guarantees.      Surely, many reading this have tried some of these products and plans to some success, only to find themselves back where they started the following year; making the same

You should have kept eating that cardboard, packaged, non-sense food. You should have tried harder, stuck with it, done what you were told.   In reality, these products, diets, or plans are set up for temporary success followed by inevitable failure.

After all, if you were able to meet and sustain your body composition goals, you wouldn’t be needing their products anymore, would you? The proof is in the powdered protein pudding.    Have you ever asked yourself why it is that these quick fix products, diets or plans can get away with advertising guaranteed weight loss?    The success of these plans is predicated on numbers. Numbers on the scale going down, numbers in the pockets of the “fitness gurus” going up. Side note: Anyone who claims to be a guru/ master —beware! Pretty sure their ego is bigger than their accomplishments.

 A number on the scale is just that, a number. This number can reflect tissue (muscle) or water loss, indicating a false or even negative body composition change. All the while leading you to believe you’re on the road to success. So here it is — and it’s not sexy. It doesn’t sell products or start fads.  Whether you wish to change your body for cosmetic or health purposes; THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL, PROGRAM, OR SOLUTION. Real change comes from real foods, consistency, hard work, and determination.  With all the information available to us through the internet, we all, in some part of our subconscious, know this. But pills and potions and tricks of the trade offer the promise of easier, quicker transformation. And in a world where the average human attention span has whittled down to eight seconds; it seems to fit the bill. Some facts amongst the fallacies. Individualization is key. There is not one single solution that will work for a group of people. We all possess a unique internal blueprint. We are all different in our ability to metabolize carbohydrates,

proteins, and fats. We therefore, as individuals, respond to diets differently. The best course of action is finding what works best for you, what makes you feel best, through trial and error. We have the ability to take control of our own health. The information is out there, the internet affords us more resources than ever thought possible. That being said, it gets overwhelming out there. Stick with peer-reviewed journals from reputable sources. There will always be arguments for all sides; learning how to listen to your own body is key. An effective trainer, nutritionist, or coach will take the time to listen to you, obtain an understanding of your unique situation, and learn what changes you are ready and willing to make in order to work with you to develop the best plan of action towards better health. *Fit From Within is a Personal Training and Lifestyle business aimed at helping people become the best versions of themselves.

MOM of the month

Hailey Dickson February’s Mom of the Month is part of a family with very strong ties to both sports and education in Cornwall. Hailey Dickson (nee Newman) is the daughter of the late Les Newman. Les is remembered by many as a respected Saint Lawrence High School physical education teacher and coach. Hailey and husband Keith are both heavily involved in athletics at Saint Joseph’s Catholic High School, where they teach and coach. Their children, Ella and Owen, are both multi-sport athletes and train with Gibbs Hockey. When she’s not filling her role as a trainer with the Panthers girls’ hockey club, Hailey is busy running mom’s taxi, shuttling her daughter and her son to hockey, spring hockey, soccer, or the gym. Ella plays with the peewee A Typhoons, and she plays with the Blazers tier 1 U12 squad. Owen is a hockey player with the minor atom A Rapids and a soccer player with the U10 boys Blazers. Both children play spring hockey as well. “It’s not just about playing sports,” Hailey says about her children’s athletic commitments. “It’s about life lessons.” She likes the fact that sports is helping her children learn to win and to lose with dignity, to handle pressure, and to be good team mates.

Ron MacLean and Tara Stone.

L

ast winter when Nicolas Seguin was in Gatineau he saw a skating trail through a forest and was inspired to create one for the Cornwall area. Since November he has been working seven days a week to prepare a 3-kilometre skating trail on his property.

The January rain did cause some difficulties keeping the skating trail in good condition, but Seguin worked hard to get it ready for opening weekend on January 19. He hopes to keep the trail open through March Break if the weather cooperates.

“There’s not much to do around here in the winter. There’s not many activities, unless you drive all the way to Ottawa, or go skiing somewhere in Quebec. So it’s something different, and people seem to react to it very well. Even when we were closed we had about 10 people showing up each day to see if they could skate,” said Seguin.

For those who prefer not to skate, a snowshoe trail follows the skating rink through the forest. On site, skate and snowshoe rentals can be found, along with a food truck that serves hot chocolate, coffee, tea, poutine,

MURPHY’S SPORTS LAW

A

s the announcement for the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2018 nears, I look at the process for the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

The BBWAA, Baseball Writers’ Association of America currently consists of more than 250 broadcasters, writers, and other sports journalists. Their primary function is to vote annually for the induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame.  This year’s recipients are very deserving including Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome, Chipper Jones, and Trevor Hoffman.   You currently need 75% support to be elected.  Barry Bonds and Rogers Clemens jumped a bit this year with both almost at 60% support with 5 years remaining on their 10 year eligibility limit.  Of course, we’re all aware the knock on Bonds and Clemens is their part in the whole steroid era.  But it goes beyond that as to why they are not reaching 75% support.  They were stand-offish, rude, arrogant, and treated the members of the BBWAA poorly for most of their careers.  So because 40% of the BBWAA hold grudges, Bonds and Clemens will continue remain locked out of Cooperstown.  BBWAA members claim it’s because of Bonds

“If it works out well, it’s definitely something I’d like to do every year,” Sequin indicated. “And maybe have something here year-round—have different kinds of activities during the spring, the summer, and the fall.”

By David Murphy and Clemens part in the steroid era. It’s hypocritical for this same group to have elected Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell, and Ivan Rodriguez who all had some level of suspicion during the steroid era.

  I believe Piazza, Bagwell and Rodriguez were three of the best players ever, at their positions, and should be in Cooperstown.  I also believe Bonds and Clemens should be elected to the Hall of Fame.

  The best way to settle this discussion is to allow currently elected members of the Hall of Fame to have a vote on who gets inducted into their exclusive club.  Those votes should count for half of vote with the BBWAA ballots counting for the other half.  I would accept it if current inductees don’t include someone for any reason, more than I do when someone who likely has never played baseball (or any sport for that matter) at a high level excludes a player.   Who knows a hall of fame calibre person better than someone already enshrined?    This debate will continue each year until voting changes.    I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  As for the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame, it’s not nearly as political as the Baseball Hall of Fame and we’re all the better for it.    That’s Murphy’s Law, I’m David Murphy

Great Happenings at Summerstown Trails

G

reat events are planned for the month of February at the Summerstown Forest cross-country ski and snowshoe trails. The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) will be organizing their annual Snowshoe Race on Saturday, February 10, and hosting families for various activities on Family Day, on Monday, February 19. The annual Summerstown Forest Dion Snowshoe Race (7.55 km) is part of the Dion Ontario Snowshoe Running Series which is held in various locations in Eastern Ontario and will be the fourth race of the season for the Series. In addition to local runners, this race attracts runners from the Ottawa, Kingston, and Montreal areas. As was the case last year, a second race will be offered at the same time: the Summerstown Forest Challenge Race (3.5 km). This shorter race is designed to attract more local area runners and younger racers. The start of both races is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 10, and will

be run on a packed rolling terrain, on the beautiful tree-covered trail network of Summerstown Forest; guaranteeing a fast race.

The next weekend, on Family Day, FOTST will be offering various free activities for all area residents and more particularly families. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rental of ski and snowshoe equipment will be free of charge. Information kiosks, guided tours, and free food will also be offered. If you don’t ski or snowshoe, just come out for a walk on the trails. With the temperature hovering around the zero degree mark, more than 450 people – including 100+ families – came out last year to enjoy these winter activities. For many it was an opportunity to try XC skiing or snowshoeing for the first time. FOTST also has a limited number of skate-skiing equipment, so FOTST— and young and old alike — will be able to try this fast and exciting version of XC skiing.

to maintain and develop green, recreational trails for healthy outdoor activities in the Summerstown Forest. In recent years, an impressive amount of progress has been made as trails have been improved and expanded, new grooming equipment and signage obtained and new activities offered, such as races, instructional lessons, outings for schools and seniors and Family Day activities. Rental of XC ski and snowshoe packages is also offered on weekends. Visitors to the trails are now able to park at the new parking lot which was built in partnership with the United Counties of SDG.

the Cougar goalie was new to the position, having played out of nets prior to this season. Although they won the game easily, the Rebels did not showboat but practised passing, and changed positions to help keep the game positive and fun. Later, the Cougars’ bench staff and parents commended the Char-Lan team for their sportsmanship and humility. In semi-final action, the Rebels faced off against the Stittsville B4 Rams, who finished in second place in the division’s other pool. CharLan played solidly, pressuring the Rams’ net while making it hard for the Stittsville team to break through. In the end, the Rebels won 6-1 and advanced to the championship round. The Char-Lan team met up against Val d’Or Group Maheu, who, like the Rebels, were undefeated heading into the final round of tournament play. Game play was quite even, with both teams demonstrating

offensive pressure and defensive skill. The Rebels broke through first, finding the net midway through the first period, but the Rams tied it up early in the second phase. In the last minute of second period play, CharLan scored to take the lead, but just seconds afterward, the Rams again tied the score at two. Back-and-forth play ensued during the third period, with the goalies making spectacular saves to keep their respective teams in the game. Finally, with just 23 seconds left in regulation time, the Rebels found the net and took over the lead. Despite final pressure from Val d’Or, the Rebels staved off Groupe Maheu, and were declared tournament champs with the 3-2 win. This tournament win marks the second of two tournament victories for the Bantam B Rebels. The team will travel to Oshawa in February to try their hand at a three-peat tournament run.

ootball is one of the best kept secrets in our sporting community. With both high school and community football growing over the past 10+ years, it’s safe to say football is alive and well in SD&G. In 2010, Cornwall Wildcats Football Club began offering summer football for athletes aged 16-19 years old, by joining the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL). This province-wide league is the highest level of football in Ontario, and the Wildcats attract the best coaches and players from Cornwall, Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec, Akwesasne, and Northern New York. Travelling by coach bus to Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, Guelph, and beyond, our top athletes compete against the best football talent that Ontario has to offer. The success of this program has led to individual success for our local players. Shining on the provincial stage has led to Cornwall Wildcats becoming a place to find universitylevel football talent. For years, university scouts never travelled to Cornwall to watch players, or even to attend local games. Now, it’s become common practice to see universities travelling to Cornwall, to watch our talented players. Individual success for Wildcats players has been stunning. Below is a list of Wildcats graduates that have gone on to play university level football. Six have won a national championship (Vanier Cup). Several have been all-stars and national award winners. Jason Lauzon-Seguin, who is currently an offensive lineman with the CFL Ottawa RedBlacks, has won a Grey Cup.

Clarkson University, Including Two Former Colts Players, Win the Friendship Four Tournament in Northern Ireland By Molly Kett

C

larkson University’s Assistant Coach Phil Roy had nothing but great things to say about the team’s experience in Northern Ireland. Between the sightseeing, the connections made and the hockey played, the team came home with an experience they’ll remember for a lifetime. Winning the tournament helps, too. This was the third Friendship Four Tournament held in Northern Ireland. This tournament celebrates the Boston and Belfast sister city agreement. According to the tournament’s website, this tournament works to “foster stronger cultural, economic, and academic partnerships between Northern Ireland

and America. Sport has the ability to unite communities and provide a conduit to revitalize the deep and broad cultural ties between America and Northern Ireland” The tournament took place during American Thanksgiving and was comprised of teams from NCAA’s Division 1 Men’s Ice Hockey, who travelled to Belfast, Northern Ireland to compete for the Belpot Trophy. “It’s a phenomenal tournament, we got to play against teams out of conference for us as a Division 1 team and the sightseeing and everything they organized…we saw some castles, we saw the Causeway which was right on the shore of the ocean, we went to the museum where they actually built the

Kate Villeneuve is no stranger to the ice. This may be her rookie season with the St. Joe’s Panthers girls’ hockey team, but she’s a seasoned veteran when it comes to her favourite sport. Kate, who just recently celebrated her 16th birthday, is a forward with the Ottawa Lady ’67s. According to Panthers co-coach Keith Dickson, Kate is one of the top forwards on the team. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as she will be moving to Toronto at the end of this summer to play for the midget AA Etobicoke junior Dolphins. She’s excited about the move; a decision which was made by the whole family.Kate is an honour roll student with an 89% average, which is fortunate because this young player is attracting attention from NCAA and CIS schools. Her academic interests include chemistry, especially the idea of doing research in the field. “I like playing [hockey] with new people,” she says of her experience with the Panthers. “I get to spend time with and see people at school. It’s a lot of fun.”

Titanic,” says Coach Roy. “We had American thanksgiving there, which they created just for us, so it was pretty cool.” Roy says the tournament helps young players recognize the great level of hockey being played by the Belfast Giants in the EIHL (Elite Ice Hockey League) and potentially decide to play for them one day. “I had a chance to play in that league years ago before I started coaching and actually Belfast was in the league when I played. It’s a nice rink…they love their hockey,” shares Coach Roy. Coach Roy says that from the bench, there were a few moments that stood out. “A couple days before the first game, we did a school tour and we saw a lot of elementary school kids… at the 7 o’clock game they had these school kids at the rink and it was so loud. I don’t remember playing a game that was this loud,” recalls Coach Roy. “So that was one of the moments I remember on the bench. The other moment is winning against Providence and being able to get on the ice and celebrate. It’s a long trip

with the time change and your departure and then once you get down there, we did a lot of sight seeing, so as a coach you’ve got to combine the enjoyment and sightseeing and making sure you take it all in, but you also have a job to do and that’s to win the game.” If you ever get a chance to visit Northern Ireland and catch a Giants’ game, Coach Roy strongly recommends it. On this winning team are two important players from right here in Cornwall, Grant Cooper and Marley Quince. “Grant has been doing really well as a freshman. Right away he came in, highenergy guy, blocking shots, playing the game in the right way. Unfortunately he injured himself and he’ll be out for the remainder of the season, but as far as his first half, it was a really good freshman year,” says Coach Roy. “Marley’s a similar type of player, plays a hard, heavy game up and down the sheet; he’s been really good for us as well. They’re two important players for our success this year.”

A Little Western Nostalgia…

By Thom Racine

S

ince I have been scouring the sports pages for history shorts in preparation for Hometown Hockey, I have always wondered about that great Cornwall Flyers team of 193738; the team that surprised everyone in the east and represented Cornwall in the Allan Cup final in Saskatoon and Calgary. What is widely known, the Flyers lost the best of five series to the Trail Smoke Eaters three games to one. As I often do, I looked for the minutiae, the tiny bits of information that put more “meat on the bones” of Back row, left to right: F. McAteer, J. Utmann, F. Gardner, A. MacDonald, W. Landymore, Don Penniston (coach), V. Godin, R. McClelland, M. McMahon, C. Markell (manager). any story. The first mystery solved comes from the Flyers’ team picture. If you look quick, why wouldn’t you think it was a picture taken many years ago in Cornwall.

Prior to the series both Trail and the Flyers likely posed for pictures at the 19th St. Arena in Saskatoon, home of game one of the series. Pretty obvious to me, the Flyers took this picture inside the arena on 19th St. in Saskatoon eh! Then, there was a curious observation, that from the hundreds of senior squads from across the country who vied for the Allan Cup, how would it come to pass that the Flyers and Smoke Eaters wore pretty much the same coloured and designed sweaters? It was decided that the teams would wear their own sweaters for two games and draw straws or flip a coin if game 5 was necessary.

Tony Luis Named One of Canada’s Top Five Boxers By Jim Riddell

T

ony Luis has been named as one of the top five pound-for-pound fighters in Canada by Standing8count.com, a website which covers boxing in Canada. Being chosen as one the top five of approximately two hundred active professional boxers in Canada is a notable accomplishment. The pound-for-pound ranking is one which has been long used in the combative arts to rank fighters regardless of which weight class they may be in. There are a dozen boxing weight classes ranging from the 122 lb super bantamweights up to the heavyweight division at 201 plus lbs. Several factors are used to determine the pound-for-pound ranking including the fighter’s skill and ability, both offensive and defensive, ring generalship, and quality of opposition. The other four fighters chosen were 1) world light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson 2) former IBF Champ David Lemieux 3) Yves Ulysse and 4) Custio Clayton. Fight fans in Cornwall would remember the former Canadian Olympian Clayton from last April at the Civic Complex. Clayton scored a 1st round KO in the fight just before Tony Luis’s stoppage of Noe Nunez in the main event.

Tony has nothing confirmed as of right now, but his next fight is being actively worked on and he hopes to have an announcement sometime soon.

Mackisoc played defence for the Colts during his two seasons with the team. “Adjusting to the speed and physicality of the game my first year was hard. In my second year, I was captain of the team, and so I had to become a leader both on and off the ice. There were many great players on that team, some with much more skill, but I still had to lead them. Wearing the letter taught me to be as prepared as I could be, not only knowing my position and role, but to know every position and each player’s role on the team as well.

It was during this year of captaincy that the Colts won their first league championship in the CJHL. The team held a 37-12-3 record.

Former Colt Justin Roethlingshoefer’s Book “Intent” Hits Shelves Early February By Molly Kett

A

t the young age of 29, Justin Roethlingshoefer has a pretty long list of accomplishments. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Roethlingshoefer grew up playing hockey. He even landed in Cornwall to play for a few years. Eventually, he went down to the United States on a hockey scholarship and was fortunate enough to get his start in coaching at the NHL level. He also went to get his master’s degree at the University of Louisville. Following this, Roethlingshoefer found himself at Miami University in Ohio as a training coach for their hockey team, where he continued to develop his principals of advanced data analytics and performance metrics. “From there I was hired by the Anaheim Ducks and have been working with their team as the director of sport performance and do all of the data analytics and help with the technology side with Anaheim on a daily basis with their players in the

NHL,” says Roethlingshoefer. Not only does he work with the NHL side of Anaheim, but the AHL side, too. During the San Diego Gulls hockey season, Roethlingshoefer is their director of strength and conditioning, sports science, and data analytics. He also oversees nutrition and much more. Roethlingshoefer has also opened his own hockey training company in Naples, Florida called The Hockey Summit. “It’s an all inclusive professional hockey camp, so anybody playing in the AHL, NHL, or any European professional league, can go there and everything’s looked after,” says Roethlingshoefer. Their housing, transportation, food, training, rink time, and even relaxation time is taken care of. Their wives can accompany them too, while they’re at Roethlingshoefer’s training camp. To add to this long list of accomplishments, Roethlingshoefer is now officially the co-author (with Devan McConnell, Director of Sports Continued on page 42

This month’s Favourite Sports Memory from multi-sport athlete Ella Dickson. In her own words: My favourite sports memory is from the Ontario Provincial Hockey Championship when I played in my Minor Atom year for the Cornwall Typhoons. We

made it to the bronze medal game and it was close. We were tied after three periods, so we had to go into sudden death overtime. We ended up playing seven overtime periods!! Both teams were exhausted because it ended up being a three-hour game. It was the seventh overtime and I scored with 5.2 seconds left! We were Provincial Bronze medalists!

Continued from page 40 Performance at Mass Lowell) of a brand new book, hitting the shelves February 5, 2018. The book’s called Intent: A Practical Approach to Sport Science and Athlete Development. “What it is, is taking the technological side of sport and giving a blueprint of what to use, how to use it, what metrics to look for, and basically developing the puzzle of what is sport technology, and different sport development and sport and athlete management,” shares Roethlingshoefer. “Say somebody who is wanting to start a facility or someone who is wanting to work with a team and implement data, they will be able to look at this and say ‘okay, I know that I want to do heart rate monitoring. Well, what heart rate monitor do I get?’ Well, we list a lot of options. ‘Once I get them, how do I use it?’ We list how to use it and apply it to your sport whether it’s hockey, whether it’s football, whether it’s baseball, whether it’s basketball, whether it’s soccer. ‘Once we have the data, how then do we get buy-in from our athletes and our coaches?’ That’s all in there as well, how to apply it to the sport setting. Same thing with

subject of metric; so looking at the way athletes feel internally, how do we test that, how do we look for it?” says Roethlingshoefer. His book also goes over how to accomplish all this on a budget that matches every level. “When my co-author and I were presenting at the NFCA conference in Colorado Springs, a lot of our talks were about the utilization of data analytics and performance data to drive athletic development and everywhere we presented…we always go faced with the same questions and we always had a lot of people coming up to us and asking us how we did this and how it would work. It was quite often overwhelming after a presentation when you have 100 people asking how to implement it,” says Roethlingshoefer. “We were just like, if it’s not this understood or common as we think, there’s obviously a need for something like this.” So after many months of work, constant e-mails, and brainstorming sessions, the book was ready to go. On February 5th, Roethlingshoefer’s book will be available at all places books are sold, including at: www. thehockeysummit.com/books.

Whistle Stops The “Team” has just completed Issue # 63, and as always, I would like to thank Lynn (Graphic Design), Margo (Editor), Bernadette (Website); our writers, Todd, Molly, Victoria, Carrie, Thom, Casey; our editorial columnists, Jim, Jorge, Dave, Matt and Christine, Kirby and Gord; The Sports Panel, Gilles, Jake, Jim; our distribution locations, our advertisers and of course the people who are featured in our stories. I hope you enjoy # 63 I can tell when February comes around. Two things always happen. 1- Its Roll up the Rim time at Tim Horton’s, and 2- rumors and grumblings about an OHL Franchise relocating here. The great debate is will the OHL work in Cornwall. While it was nostalgic for people my age to see the Nationals wear the Royals jerseys at a recent game, reality is can we support an OHL franchise? I have some old Royals pictures from the late Vern MacDonald. In them, the stands are full, but most come from the day’s when the Royals played in the QMJHL. The Ed Lumley arena is one of the largest facilities in Ontario without a major Junior Team. For the OHL to work here, our city council would have to change its “User Pay” policy and partner with a team. Since the Royals and Aces, council has repeatedly stated they are not in the hockey business. This

Three Players Still Hitting the Ice at 75

T

hey are each 75 years young, and they are hitting the ice in Long Sault with their club, the Huff and Puffs, twice every week. They are Ray Gervais, Bill Doan, and Peter Inouye. As hockey players, they have a lot in common.

Ray Gervais, whose favourite NHL club is Les Canadiens, didn’t lace up as a hockey player until his own kids were grown. “Some of the guys I knew played with the Huff and Puffs, so I played there,” he says. He recalls Bill Doan, Peter Inouye and Ray Gervais. Photo Submitted first hitting the ice in the early 80s. Bill Doan was 40 when he started playing in Finch. Before that, he played intramural hockey at McGill when he attended Macdonald College to study agriculture. Doan is a farmer whose main crops are soybeans and corn. “I sort of aged out when I played in Finch,” he says. “The Huff and Puffs are a great bunch of guys. They really value fair play and sportsmanship.”

kid. He did skate with a team in the Industrial League in Toronto, and he has been with the ‘Puffs for about a dozen years. “Hockey is something I enjoy and have fun with. I like that I can keep doing it at this age,” says Inouye. He moved to Cornwall in 1969 and has since retired from Richmond Diecast.

The three gentlemen agree that it would be difficult, if not impossible, Peter Inouye, like his team mate to find a better bunch of guys with Ray Gervais, didn’t play hockey as a whom to play their favourite game.

would have to change. According to Hockey DB, 5 OHL Teams have average attendance below 3000. All, however, are above the 2000 mark per game. Can Cornwall hit over 3000 per game, with walk-up adult ticket prices in the mid $20.00 per game? How many people and businesses are willing to commit upwards of $400.00 for a season ticket? Arena advertising packages would also have to be sold. If we have a commitment from the people and council, all we need is a team not happy where they are with a lease that is expiring, wanting to relocate (or sell), and willing to give Cornwall a chance.

I have always said the best way to draw attention of potential OHL investors to the city, is to support what is here. If the Nationals and Colts were drawing 2500 – 3000 fans per game, someone will take notice. Speaking of the Nationals, welcome back M.J. Graham. MJ is an exciting player to watch and a great pick up for the stretch drive. Congrat’s to Colts’ goaltender Liam Lascelle. Liam holds the Colts’ record for most games played and most wins.

I would also like to welcome Football Coach Kirby Camplin and Gord Shaver to the Energy Team. Coach Kirby will be writing a column on football while Gord will be submitting sports news from South Stormont.
