The Shuswap Outlaws Midget lacrosse team stamped their mark on the 2015 Midgets Minor Box Lacrosse Provincial Championships last weekend at the CN Arena in Prince George.
In the opening match of the tournament, Shuswap received an unwelcome wake-up call courtesy of the Ridge Meadows Burrards.
After the 7-1 loss to the Burrards, the Outlaws met the New Westminster Salmonbellies only a few hours later.
Goals were plentiful in the Outlaws’ second match of the day.
The final score was 8-3, and put the Outlaws in a good position for the medal round.
In the final game of the round robin, Shuswap again came out scoring at will.
They easily doubled up the Peninsula Warriors, from Victoria 8-4.
Unfortunately, the Outlaws’ two convincing wins could not help them overcome their opening loss and they narrowly failed to qualify for the medal round.
Despite not making the medal round the Outlaws were proud to finish as one of the top-five teams overall in the province, in a competitive tournament.
On the final day of the tournament at the recognition ceremonies, two Outlaws players received awards.
For her sportsmanlike play throughout the tournament, Emily New was awarded the Fair Play Award.
Drew Bannister was named to the provincial all star team and was the recipient of the $500 Subway Zone 2 student athlete of the year scholarship.
