Sudbury's Most Complete Local Sports Coverage


Date Published: April 1, 2005

A Grade 8 student at Jessie Hamilton in Lively, there are few sports that Erika Kiviaho does not enjoy. But at or near the top of the list for the talented youngster is ringette, a sport she states is “fast and involves a lot of teamwork.”

In addition to her prowess on the ice with the Valley East Tweens, Kiviaho is also well-known locally as a top notch track & field athlete, training at Laurentian with Track North coach Dick Moss. At Jessie Hamilton, the cheerful Kiviaho has participated in basketball, volleyball and cross-country running as well as elementary track meets.

As a member of the Regional Tween ringette team, she joins forces with teammates from across the North. “Some come from as much as four hours away” she explains, noting that “when we’re on our game, we can beat any team.” The Tweens came home as provincial silver medalist, edged 4-3 by Chatham in the gold medal game.
