Congratulations to all the winning and participating teams!!! Thank you to all players, coaches, and fans who attended.  

The tournament got off to a slow start with a few teams arriving late to Thunder Bay and missing their first game.  All in all, the crowds were very good and a lot of people came out to support the teams.  You could feel the excitement in the air as fans cheered o­n their teams.  

The following cost breakdown is for your information:  A total of $15,750. cash prizes were awarded along with $1,000. worth of trophies for the champs. A grand total of $16,750.00 went back to the teams. We depended o­n the door proceeds to off-set the costs of the tournament. We came up short but it was worth the cause for Nishnabe women in sports.

Thanks to our committee and volunteers for the long hours spent at the arena.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to email us.  Meegwetch, Joanne Mamakeesic.  7th Generation Athletics Circle.  

P.S. See you all next year!!

Poplar Hill Baseball Tournament

The Poplar Hill Tournament is now completed. It began on Thursday, August 22, 2002. There were four local teams, one team from Cat Lake, one team from Deer Lake and two teams from Paungassi. Three other teams planning to attend were not able to make the trip to Poplar Hill. The Winners were Poplar Hill WolfPac as the A-side Champs. Runner up was Paungassi team 1. B-side champs were Cat Lake with the runners up being the Paungassi team 2. Paungassi nearly did the same thing Poplar Hill did in the Deer Lake tournament where they won both A and B side. But after a shaky start both the Poplar Hill and Cat Lake teams prevailed and won their final games in their divisions. Even so, both the Paungassi teams played to the top of their games, giving the winners a good run for their money.
