Tim Griffin from the Class of 1968 made a brilliant bounce from athletic success at Ridley to international success in competitions across the globe. A true scrapper, he won the McLachlan Cup for being the best boxer in Lower School. Later, he went on to play First Cricket, Tennis and Squash, winning a Little Big Four championship in each sport. He won the Dr. Adam Wright Memorial Prize for exemplary fielding on the cricket team, but beyond the Ridley gates, his greatest athletic achievements would occur on the courts. He went on to compete internationally in both tennis and squash, representing Canada in the World Team Tennis Championships in Turkey, Croatia, Austria and the US. He has been a fierce and frequent squash competitor in Lapham-Grant and Can-Am Cup matches. In fact, all told he has earned 22 national tennis and squash titles, including one as recently as the summer of 2018.
