Burrards minor lacrosse has put the most girls ever onto Team B.C. squads, which will compete at the nationals later this summer.
Tryouts were held in Port Moody over three days recently. This year there are three teams being sent to the nationals, which are being held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from July 23-28. Bantam, midget and junior girl teams will be representing the province.
Ridge Meadow players had outstanding tryouts, with the result being the most girls ever being selected from the association to play on their respective teams.
On the bantam team, Ashley Kingsbury, Paige Bell, Candace McDole, Sarah Ickert, Megan Stewart, and Nicole Pahnke were selected.
The head coach of the bantam Team BC girls is Jason McDole who is also from Ridge Meadows Minor Lacrosse.
On the midget team, Ciara Curran, Daniela Carey and Megan Kinna were selected.
On the junior team, Ashley Bull made the final cut.
The bantam and midget teams will be striving to repeat as gold medal winners, while this will be the first year of nationals at the junior level.
