KnappChristy Gardner
Disabled Athlete of the Year
An accomplished high school athlete, Christy Gardner participated in many different sports throughout her life and earned a scholarship to Long Island University for field hockey and lacrosse. After college, she enlisted in the army and was stationed in Korea, where she suffered injuries that ended her ability to play standard sports and almost left her unable to live on her own. After successful rehabilitation, and with the help of a faithful service dog named Moxie, Gardner was able to regain her life and independence. She has also rediscovered her inner athlete through the sport of sled hockey. Now, she acts as a mentor to younger disabled athletes both on and off the ice. She not only encourages them to practice and learn as much as they can about the sport, but also models how to be a tremendous friend, teammate and athlete. In January, she organized an event to bring her sled hockey team to her hometown of Lewiston, Maine, where they played a series of games against the team from the University of New Hampshire. She is also the only female player on the military sled team, the USA Warriors.

Adult Member of the Year, presented by Labatt Blue
As the general manager of Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter Sports, Tom Cline has been involved with the sport of ice hockey since he began playing at that facility as a youngster in 1972.

In the past three years, his responsibilities have grown to include direction of both the house/recreation and travel hockey programs, along with the recent acquisition of two businesses vertically integrated into the overall operation. Under his guidance, the number of adult leagues has doubled with the introduction of an over-35 league in the early 1990s and a subsequent over-50 league, complete with a waiting list. In addition, the youth hockey department has increased the number of skaters at the facility, expanded program offerings, provided a stronger base for girls' hockey and codified player development across both house and travel teams as a means of retaining and creating a better player experience.
