Would have been nice if someone would have covered this event as both the Women's (bronze) and men's (Gold) teams from Sault College won medals. Another poor effort on covering local sports teams. Very unfortunate

Yah, incredible, not a peep on here about this event, which is big for the Sault; or to let people know how local teams fared. Not even a summary yet, of a major sporting event which ended Sunday.
