HSC Community Members Help Bring TO2015 to Hamilton


With Uruguay’s 1-0 defeat of Mexico in the men’s gold medal match on July 26, 2015, the City of Hamilton wrapped up its two weeks as the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games soccer tournament host. Two HSC community members played large roles in helping bring TO2015 to Hamilton. Nick Bontis, a current parent and Board of Governors member, is on the Board of Directors at the Canadian Soccer Association and has been involved in the city’s negotiations to obtain the tournament for six years. Ron Foxcroft, HSC Builder and parent of alumni, refereed two Pan Am Games basketball matches and helped bring together political and business players to secure Pan Am soccer in Hamilton.
