Riverhawks take flight in Alvinston


Minor ball teams in Alvinston will now been known as the Riverhawks.

The club decided to drop its Indians nickname and find a name that is more culturally suitable, according to a news release issued on Facebook last weekend.

“We became leaders in this area, and received a lot of positive exposure in the media, which was evidenced with the $29,000 we collected in six days of fundraising,” says the statement issued by the team.

“Ultimately, we feel we have selected a logo which kids will think is ‘cool’ and that represents something new and original for us to go forward with into the future.”
