Dedication to Sport available as a virtual tour

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame’s newest virtual tour features the exhibits of our 13 newest inductees.

The 2021 and 2022 induction classes were enshrined concurrently at the SSHF’s 54th Induction Dinner & Ceremony. Dedication to Sport: Our New Inductees features artifacts and stories from that great double-class of SSHF inductees.

Dedication to Sport is available as a virtual tour thanks to our partnership with Queen City 3D in Regina. Each tour allows the user to navigate through the space of the exhibit and click on tags inside the tour that offer stories, photos and videos to complement the exhibit.

This is one of several virtual tours that are available on our website which preserves them for the future and fulfills our province-wide mandate.

The Class of 2021 features athletes Justin Abdou (Moose Jaw – Wrestling), Rod M. Boll (Fillmore – Trapshooting), Colette Bourgonje (Porcupine Plain – Athletics and Skiing), Kaylyn Kyle (Saskatoon – Soccer), and Lyndon Rush (Humboldt – Bobsleigh). Shannon Miller (Tisdale – Hockey) joins the 2021 class as a builder and the 2000-01 University of Regina Cougars Women’s Basketball Team and the 2013 Saskatchewan Roughriders Football Club are being inducted in the team category.

The five members of the Class of 2022 are: Kelsie Hendry (Saskatoon – Athletics), Harry Winston Jerome OC (Prince Albert – Athletics), Rueben Mayes (North Battleford – Football) in the athlete category plus Antonia “Toni” Beerling (Rosthern – Athletics) and William “Bill” Brownridge (Vawn – Hockey) in the builder category.

New virtual tour features 2019 Induction Class

Dedication to Sport: Our 2019 Inductees is the newest exhibit to become a virtual tour.

Dedication to Sport opened in September of 2019 on the occasion of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame’s 52nd Induction Ceremony and Dinner. The 2019 Induction Class featured Chris Biegler (basketball), Wendel Clark (hockey), Jacki Nichol (softball), Kelly Parker (soccer), Marg [Curry] Sihvon (basketball) and Colleen Sostorics (hockey) as well as builders Clarence Campbell (hockey) and Bill Kinash (cycling) to the Hall of Fame.

This exhibit features artifacts, photos and stories from each of those inductees. While the exhibit is intended to last for one year, the 2019 Class graciously allowed the Hall of Fame to continue to display their collections after the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the induction of a new in class in 2020.

Our Dedication to Sport virtual tour features the induction video from each member of the 2019 Induction Class at the base of their display. Additional stories and descriptions are available by clicking on the round tags that accompany the tour.

In partnership with White Rabbit VR in Regina, this is the third virtual tour that has captured an exhibit at the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. Our current featured exhibit Prairie Pride: A History of Saskatchewan Football is available online.

Our first virtual tour from 2018, Diamond Girls’ Diamond Anniversary: 75 Years of the AAGPBL, also remains available to explore.
