October 24, 2002 Sports Hall of Fame grows at Concordia




by John Austen

Three athletes and two teams were celebrated last Friday at the annual Concordia University Department of Recreation and Athletics Sports Hall of Fame dinner and induction ceremony at Molson Breweries.

The 2003 inductees were Corinne Corcoran (Concordia women’s hockey), Frank Kelly (Loyola hockey, football), Donald Morris (Loyola/Concordia men’s hockey), the 1976 Concordia Stingers men’s soccer team and the 1965-’66 Sir George Williams men’s hockey team.

Corcoran was considered one of the best women’s hockey players of the 1980s. The prolific scorer was a three-time team MVP and Female Athlete of the Year on two occasions.

Kelly, nicknamed Spike, was all-star goaltender and the team captain who led the Loyola men’s hockey team to three consecutive Dominion championship titles. He was also a member of the football team.

Morris, a high-scoring All-Canadian defenceman, started with the Loyola Warriors and finished his career as captain of the first Concordia men’s hockey team. The 1976 Concordia men’s soccer team went undefeated that year en route to a CIAU championship, the first national title for Concordia University.

The 1965-’66 Sir George Williams men’s hockey team was part of the great Georgians hockey dynasty of the mid-1960s. This squad won the Ottawa-St. Lawrence Athletic Association title and advanced to the Canadian university championship.
