It may not be the Stanley Cup final, but R.D Parker Collegiate held the Evans Merasty memorial floor hockey tournament final on May 5. Trish Dreolini, a physical education teacher, says the Evans Merasty tournament started about five years ago, as a memorial event for Merasty, who was a teacher at the high school before he passed away.
This year, seven teams competed during the tournament, with the Dekes of Hazard coming out on top and winning the trophy. The tournament is co-ed, and open to all grades in the high school. Dreolini says organizers will be meeting at the end of the year to discuss the future of the event and if it will continue on next year.
