About: The Under-15 girls representing Ontario’s east region won bronze at the Ontario Summer Games in London. The team that had been training together since mid-June came together to capture the August prize. According to the team’s coach, Mia Fitzpatrick, the team had three under-agers and six players who only took up field hockey this year. “I have never met a team of girls so dedicated, hardworking, inclusive, and sportsmanlike, and I know all of them will go far in every aspect of life,” raved Fitzpatrick.
