2009-05-05

The Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) inducted two from St. Lawrence College into the OCAA Hall of Fame at the induction ceremony held Wednesday, April 29, 2009 at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts in Windsor, Ontario. The OCAA Hall of Fame honours athletes, coaches and builders who have made significant contributions to the OCAA throughout their careers.

Former coach James Wallace was recognized for his exemplary service as the coach of the St. Lawrence College Touch Football team. James began coaching in 1990 as an assistant coach and became the Head Coach the following year. His tenure as Head Coach ran from 1991 – 2006 and at that time James was the longest serving coach at St. Lawrence College, Kingston. His team accomplishments include winning the Little Vanier Cup in 1990, and several gold, silver and bronze medals at the OCAA Provincial Championships. Under his tutelage, St. Lawrence teams medalled every year but one during James' 16-year coaching career.

Also inducted into the Hall of Fame was Colleen Webster, a former standout soccer athlete. She is ninth all-time in the OCAA in scoring with 25 goals in three seasons and made it into the record books for her average of 2.50 goals per game, the highest in OCAA history. Colleen was also named to the OCAA women’s soccer All-Millennium Team – signifying the best women’s soccer players since the inception of the OCAA in 1967.

"We are extremely proud to have these two contributors to our athletics program honoured," said Brad Greenwood, Athletic Director, St. Lawrence College. "Both James and Colleen exemplify excellence in their chosen sports and have greatly contributed not just to their sport, but to the college as a whole. We are proud of their achievements and are very happy that they have been so rightly recognized by the OCAA."
