Hall of Fame Class of 2014 unveiled
by Randy Pascal

A group of ten new inductees will enter the House of Kin Sudbury Sports Hall of Fame in June, with the list unveiled earlier this week. As expected, there is a cross-section of well-known local sports personalities that have shaped the city over the years.

The Class of 2014 includes:

Wayne Eadie (post-humously): Involved for years with the Sudbury Lakers organization in both minor hockey and minor basketball circles, Eadie was also a fairly accomplished athlete back in the day

Terry McKinty: Founder of the Northland Athletic Club, McKinty was a devoted track coach who spearheaded countless events during the 1970s and 1980s as participation numbers grew in running related activities

Dr Ricardo de la Riva: The long-time city councillor was at the forefront of the establishment of organized youth soccer leagues in Sudbury in the 1960s, remaining actively involved through to the new millenium

Don Benoit: The founder of the Benoit Martial Arts Studio has guided his club through several decades of instruction and competition, providing the opportunity for a number of his athletes to test themselves against the very best that Canada and the world have to offer

Michael Stewart: The last Canadian to don a gold medal at the World Junior Boxing Championships, Stewart ruled in his weight class in 1992, setting aside the sport entirely just two years later

John McCreedy (post-humously): Born in Winnipeg and raised in Kirkland Lake, McCreedy was a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Toronto Maple Leafs before ascending to the role of Vice-Chairman of Inco in Sudbury

Paul Gauthier: Arguably the best quarterback that Sudbury has ever seen, Gauthier is already enshrined in the NFC (Northern Football Conference) Hall of Fame, having continued his love of football for many years after as head coach of the Collège Notre-Dame Alouettes

Joyce Salo-Mckenzie: A bronze medal winner at the Canadian Junior Figure Skating Championships in 1949, Joyce-Salo McKenzie went on to teach as a club pro for many years, grooming the likes of Wendy Philion during her coaching tenure

Polish White Eagles (1969): For years, the 1969 Polish White Eagles would stand as the last local soccer team of any kind to capture an Ontario Cup championship, capping a successful run that endured through much of the 1960s

Conrad Houle (Track & Wheels): The founder of Track & Wheels in 1980, Conrad Houle was an integral part of a company that immersed itself in the local sports scene, most notably through youth basketball with his grand-daughters. Houle and his company have persevered, in spite of the tragic airplane accident in 2009 that claimed the life of his son, Kevin, daughter-in-law Lorry Lemaire, grand-daughter, Emily, and her boyfriend, Michael Rollins.
