Faster, Higher, Stronger

A fitting motto for Olympic athletes, but also applicable for many other athletes on a lesser scale. And a large number of those athletes gathered at First Ontario Centre in Hamilton Friday for the high school portion of the Hamilton Indoor Games. 450 athletes representing 25 schools across the area competed in a variety of track and field events. At 89 years, it is not only the oldest track meet in North America, but also one of the few opportunities for these athletes to compete during the winter months. Here’s a look at some of the action. – Barry Gray

Knights More than Enough for St. Mary’s

Last week, the St. Mary’s Crusaders girls hockey team defeated their rivals from St. Thomas More is league play. Tuesday, they played a rematch, and this time, it was all Knights, all night. The girls from STM trounced St. Mary’s, 10-0. After a scoreless first period, the Knights tallied 3 in the middle frame, and ran away with it in the 3rd. But, as the saying goes, the playoffs are a new season, and that new season begins for the ladies on Wednesday of this week. Here’s a look at the action from today. – Barry Gray
