Recognizing local sporting heroes: Clarington inducts new members to the Sports Hall of Fame

Posted on Tuesday October 29, 2019

Clarington October 29, 2019/- The Municipality of Clarington would like to congratulate the 2019 inductees to the Sports Hall of Fame. During a ceremony held on Saturday night at Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex, Clarington recognized local sporting heroes who have made an impact on sports in the community.

The annual celebration recognizes individuals who have contributed to the growth of sport in the community and who have excelled in their chosen sport. The inductees are nominated in four categories: athlete, builder, team and honorary.

Clarington Sports Hall of Fame is proud to welcome our new inductees:

  • Richard Harry Gay – Athlete/Builder
  • Paul Quantrill – Athlete
  • Mark Nicholas Rupa – Athlete
  • Susanne Welbanks – Athlete
  • 2002 Clarington Green Gaels Lacrosse - Team

The Municipality created the Clarington Sports Hall of Fame in 2003 to acknowledge the outstanding athletic achievements of local residents. Since then, 97 Clarington sporting heroes have been inducted into the Hall of Fame in various categories. The evening has become a hallmark event in the community.

“We are honoured to pay tribute to the outstanding accomplishments of all our talented local athletes, and we congratulate them on their many successes,” said Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster. “We also recognize and commend the dedication and commitment of the trainers, coaches and builders who contribute so much to athletics and the community overall,” added Mayor Foster.
