Continuing with the “Sports Legends of Peterborough” series, Dan Malta recently sat down with 2006 Hall of Fame inductee Mary Hinan-Grose.
Inducted into the Peterborough & District Sports Hall of Fame, Mary was inducted in the builder category for her contributions to curling and softball.
Mary played in the Women’s City Softball League for 14 years, winning the championship four times. She also organized, coached and served as Convener in the Community Church Softball League for several years. Nevertheless, it is in the sport of curling where Mary truly made her greatest contribution. After joining the Peterborough Curling Club in 1959, she worked on the Centennial Committee in 1976, the Canadian Senior Championship Committee in 1988, and was Chairperson for curling in the Ontario Winter Games in 1988. Her ability to organize and run events smoothly, earned her the nickname, ‘Sergeant Mary.’
