Tennis courts officially open

From the Prescott Journal, July 30, 1975

It was a good weekend for tennis in Prescott, but a bad weekend for local players as the 2nd Annual Prescott Tennis Tournament was dominated by out of town players. The courts were officially opened Friday by Mayor Pat Kingston and Councillor Mel Doris, and by 6 p.m. the tournament was underway on the three new plexi-paved courts. Bryan Dalley and his brother, Allan, reached the consolation men’s doubles final, but lost 8-7 to Gill Aubert of Winchester and Bob Gamelin of Cornwall.

Brave New World
Connor Van Luit (9) greets teammate Jason Moorhouse (19) after crossing the plate for the Brockville Major Little League Braves. The two Prescott boys are part of the Braves team that won the Ontario District 7 title Friday, downing Kemptville 8-4. Moorhouse had an RBI double and then pitched three innings to preserve the win, leaving runners stranded on third base in both the fourth and sixth innings. The Braves are in Oakville now, where they opened the provincial championships up with a 16-6 win over South Ottawa Monday.
