Jonathan “Hot Wheels” Morrison Award

The tournament committee is pleased to announce a new award as part of our annual wheelchair basketball tournament:

This inaugural award will be presented to a player annually at the Niagara Invitational Wheelchair Basketball Tournament who displays similar characteristics that Hot Wheels showed at every practice and game during his wheelchair basketball career. This player will display a love and dedication to the sport and their team, a fierce competitiveness on the court, strong skills on and off the court, humour and ability to push his teammates and competitors to be better athletes and people.

Brock Niagara Penguins’ wheelchair basketball star, Jonathan Morrison, at the young age of 24 years, passed away on Sunday July 19th,2015. Every player, coach, volunteer and supporter miss Jonathan.Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 1.44.38 PM

Boccia Blast – London October 2017

Congrats to Jim Davis and Joshua Gautier on their performances at the Boccia Blast Tournament in London. Jim left the weekend with a silver medal in both the BC 5 individual category and in the team’s BC2 division. He also finished the tournament with the Spirit of the Games award. Josh won this award last year, therefore keeping it in Niagara. Joshua had an excellent tournament, placing fourth in a very difficult BC4 division, playing against Paralympians!
