St Joseph’s win inaugural Hazel McCallion Trophy
By Eddie Norfolk
St Joseph's girls won the inaugural Annual Hazel McCallion Trophy at what proved the appropriately named Iceland Cricket Oval on Thursday, May 22. A stiff wind blew across the ground on a cool day, but this outdoor girls’ tournament, named in honour of Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion, went ahead, following the spirit of cricket.
St Joseph's beat Rick Hansen in the third game of the day, after beating Port Credit in the day's opening match. Rick Hansen edged out Port Credit by just one run in the second game.
The match was hosted by the Mississauga Ramblers Cricket, Sports and Cultural Club in partnership with the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association, the City of Mississauga and the Mississauga Sports Council.
Mayor McCallion has supported sports, especially girls and women's sports for many years. It is hoped to be the first of many such tournaments that will grow bigger and better.
