KAWARTHA LAKES-The 2023 Inductees to the Lindsay and District Sports Hall of Fame have been announced.

Next, Harrison Carter, just twenty-eight years of age, a true wonder in the sport of Wakeboarding. Harrison has captured a Provincial and a National Championship — known as Mr. ‘Silky Smooth’ for his acrobatic and clean performances.
The third Inductee is a young woman from the Village of Woodville who has dedicated three decades of her life to teaching, coaching and mentoring young people in the sport of Figure Skating. Denise Harris is known as a compassionate and dedicated person who has touched the lives of hundreds of young skaters throughout the Kawartha Lakes and Durham Region.
Our fourth Inductee is a Team from Bobcaygeon. This Junior ‘D’ Hockey Team won All-Ontario in 1965-66 and several players went on to semi-pro and pro hockey. This Team inspired hockey for years and generations to come and was considered one of the most talented teams ever out of Bobcaygeon and the Kawartha region.
