LPCI Women’s Hockey Wins Gold for Ontario

Marco recently rose in the House to recognize the Lawrence Park Panthers Women’s Hockey team. See the video and text below:

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge Lawrence Park Panthers girls hockey team who recently won the gold medal for all of Ontario!

This is the first time that an LPCI hockey team has won a medal of any kind at the Ontario Federation of Student Athletic Associations (OFSAA) tournament, and is a monumental achievement for Lawrence Park Collegiate, for girls hockey and for the riding of Eglinton-Lawrence.

I want to join with the parents and all constituents in our riding in giving a heartfelt hooray to coach Karen Daigle and the grade 11 and 12 players for this huge win.  As a father of two girls, I thank you for your perseverance and in being such amazing role models. As the Prime Minister said on his recent state visit to the United States: there is NO doubt who plays the best hockey!

The Lawrence Park Panthers team are: Lucy Birrell, Maddie Carew, Grace Doris, Leah Ellement, Samie Gorman, Emily Harper, Quinn Johnston, Julia Keogh, Megan Killeen, Veronica Moore, Emily Morgan, Natali Robinson, Jamie Samson, Riley Samson, Michelle Scully, and Riley Smith.
