Slo-Pitch Tourney 2016

Dufferin-Peel Secondary Unit hosted its inaugural Teachers’ Slo-Pitch Tournament at Duggan Park in Brampton on Saturday, May 29, 2016.

Six teams signed up to play. Many of the teams were hybrids of two or three schools combining to form a team. A team made up of teachers from Notre Dame S.S. and St. Edmund Campion S.S. won the championship against a squad of competitors from St. Thomas Aquinas S.S. and Father Goetz S.S.

Other teams in the tourney drew on teachers from St. Michael, St. Marcellinus, St. Joan of Arc, Cardinal Ambrozic and the Unit Office.

Proceeds from the tournament were donated to Interim Place, a non-profit organization based in Peel Region offering shelter, support and counselling to women and children escaping the cycle of abuse.

Special thanks go out to DPSU Executive members Jennifer Pouw and Ryan Dollimore who organized the tournament. Thank you to all who participated. DPSU looks forward to hosting our Second Annual Tournament next spring!
