Gold-medal winners

Congratulations to the 2015 Peewee Mets – Gold Medal League winners for this season. Their final game was a 15-8 win over the St Albert Dodgers. We are told it was a great season for these kids, and with a 12-1-1 league record and a Gold Medal win at the NEZ tournament in Edmonton as well, we can’t see how it could be anything but a great season.

He’s a Derby Girl

Morinville Public School Principal Wayne Rufiange was made an Honourary Derby Girl on Friday by the Sturgeon County Junior Roller Derby Association. Rufiange was surprised with a shirt and a number of gift items from the association, including books for the school’s junior high school program. The gifts were a token of appreciation for the principal’s support in helping the growing derby group secure the school gymnasium for practice space. “We are so lucky to have him support us,” said Eva Scrimshaw, a parent actively involved in the association.
