By Lindsay Advocate

Lindsay’s Bonni-Jo Tutton (centre) will be inducted into the Scugog Sports Hall of Fame on Nov. 7, as a member of the 1994/95 Port Perry IGA Junior A Ringette Team.

Tuttonwas among 13 women on the Port Perry IGA Juniors who were known across Ontario as “the tough little team from Port Perry,” whose confidence and resilience earned them a Provincial Championship in their 1994/95 season.

Losing their first two games of the tournament against the province’s top teams in Pembroke and Seaforth, the young women returned to the ice to battle teams from Keewatin, Hamilton and Sault Ste. Marie, earning a reputation as “the comeback kids.”

In the semi-finals, the exhausted team had to tackle the Seaforth team again, to qualify for a rematch against Pembroke. The 1994-95 Port Perry IGA Ringette Team is remembered fondly by their coaches as the team that wouldn’t quit, coming all the way back from losing their first two games, to winning the championships.

Along with Lindsay’s Bonni-Jo Tutton and the 1994/95 Port Perry Ringette Junior A Champions, the Scugog Sports Hall of Fame celebrates its 13th season Nov. 7 by inducting hockey standout Casey Vanschagen, former president of Port Perry District Minor Softball Carolyn Best, and the Warriner Curling Team into the Hall.

Join the Scugog Sports Hall of Fame Committee for its induction ceremony, to learn more about inductees and celebrate their careers and sports in Scugog Township at the Scugog Community Recreation Centre. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the induction ceremony begins at 7 p.m. The event is free to attend, and includes a cash bar, silent auction, a performance by comedian Freddy Proia and a memorable evening suitable for the whole family.
