The 1945 N.F.C.V.I. Senior Rugby Team lost only one game during the regular schedule. They defeated teams from Stamford, Fort Erie, Port Colborne, Welland and St. Catharines to win the Niagara District Championship.

It was quite an accomplishment, as the 1944 N.F.C.V.I. Championship Rugby Team was rebuilt after a number of the players graduated. The 1945 N.F.C.V.I. Senior Rugby Team were extremely proud to bring back the Niagara District Championship trophy for a second year in a row.

The 1991 Niagara Falls Mr. Transmission Midget Boys Fastball Team was made up of many talented players. The coaching staff's constant focus on strong communication and teamwork was instrumental in the team's success.


The coaching staff of Clive Newson, Mac Lewis and Ron Webb brought years of valuable coaching experience as well as their own personal experience in playing the game. Their relentless approach in preparing these young men helped instill a winning attitude which prepared them to become the first team in Niagara Falls to win the Ontario Amateur Softball Association Championships (O.A.S.A.), bringing Niagara Falls the Gold Medal.


Four players from the team advanced to represent Ontario in the 1993 Canada Summer Games hosted in Kamloops, British Columbia: Phil Boyer, Jamie McCloy, Shane Newson and Jason Vormittag.

An inspired Stamford High School Basketball Team became the Cinderella team of a most hectic and closely contested senior boys' All Ontario Basketball Tournament. Stamford had earlier been defeated by Niagara Falls Collegiate in the District final but had been given a bye into the championship as the Niagara District representative. Once in the tournament, they rolled to an unexpected but well earned championship. On their way to victory, the Hornets defeated Ottawa Lisgar 65- 47 and then moved into the semi-final with a previously undefeated team from Toronto Northern Vocational. They upset Toronto 43- 40 and were into the finals. In the championship game, Stamford was matched against defending champion Windsor Patterson High School. Both teams were weary from the afternoon semi-finals and played cautious basketball most of the way. The game was tied 24-24 at the half but Stamford pulled away at the end for the 54-47 victory. It was a wild and emotional celebration for the Stamford fans who were there in abundance at the old arena on Victoria Ave. The championship was a perfect ending to a wonderful basketball season.
