Eisler, Wellwood entering Hall | The Cambridge Reporter, 19 April 2002 [cached]
In the builders category the Hall is inducting Jack and Joyce Leggatt.
The Leggatts have made their mark on the local sports scene with their hard work behind the scenes, Joyce especially with speed skating and Jack with junior golf.
The Scottish natives - Joyce came to Canada in 1953, Jack in 1964 - have established roots in Canada, living elsewhere only for two years in the early 1970s when they lived in South Africa.
Joyce started off with the Cambridge Speed Skating Club as secretary and eventually became president.She has also served as vice-president of the Canadian Amateur Speed Skating Association (now called Speed Skating Canada).
The Leggatts volunteered with the local speed skating club as a result of their son Ian's participation in the sport (Ian is now a successful PGA golfer) and Joyce continued her involvement over three decades with a club that has produced world-class skaters like Derrick Campbell and Kevin Overland.
Joyce has also served as president of the Ontario Speed Skating Association and more recently as the Ontario association's vice-president of development.
The Leggatts have been involved in the Can-Amera Games since their inception in 1972 and Joyce with the Cambridge Sports Awards.The Leggatts have also been involved for 14 years with the Top-Flite Junior Golf Tour.
Joyce received the Woman of the Year Award in 1994, a special achievement award in 1991 from the Province of Ontario, and was awarded by Speed Skating Canada with the OSSA Award of Excellence in 1991, and the John Hurdis Award 2001.She also received a recognition award from the Amateur Speed Skating Union in 1996.

7 join Sports Hall of Fame | The Cambridge Reporter, 7 May 2002 [cached]
Attending a Cambridge Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday were, from left, Joyce Schoenfeld (on behalf of son Jim), Wray Upper, Jack Leggatt, Joyce Leggatt and William Wellwood.
Instead Saturday's inductees - Intercounty legend Wray Upper, NHLer Jim Schoenfeld, skating pair Katherina Matousek and Lloyd Eisler, horseman William Wellwood, and speed skating and junior golf executives Joyce and Jack Leggatt - each in their own modest fashion publicly expressed their appreciation for the honour.
But his mother Joyce was there Saturday to accept the honour.
"This is the highlight of my life," said Upper, when he accepted his plaque, a significant statement considering Upper was an 11-time Intercounty baseball all-star and even had a night dedicated to him in 1970, at the conclusion of his 20th Intercounty season.
Even after the official ceremony, evidence abounded that these inductees were linked by their dedication, their tireless passion.
"He's just Jimmy," said Schoenfeld's mother."He's never let any of this go to his head."
There was plenty that could have gone to his head.
That work has also involved such efforts as Joyce serving for 10 years as the president of the Ontario Speed Skating Association.
The other inductees also have enjoyed many accolades and successes over the years.
