The members of the Port Colborne Hornets Major Bantam Girls (U14) received special honours at Tuesday night’s regular meeting of Port Colborne Council.

The team was recognized for recently bringing home the Ontario Cup as champions in their division. The championship games were held Apr. 15-17 in Brampton.

The Hornets won their division after narrowly beating Markham/Unionville 23-22.

“We are honoured to have with us her tonight some very special ladies,” Acting Mayor Bea Kenny said. “It is a pleasure to welcome them, they really are ambassadors of Port Colborne and did us proud.”

Team Coach Barclay Walker was very proud of his team’s work this year. Before going into the championships, they also won three silver medals in other tournaments throughout the year.

In addressing council, he said: “I’d like to use this quote from Michael Jordan because it really applies to this team, ‘Talent wins games, teamwork and intelligence wins championships.’”

The team members were presented with Certificates of Achievement for the City of Port Colborne by Acting Mayor Bea Kenny and Deputy Mayor John Mayne.
