With a five-game winning streak, Vermilion Roar Lacrosse brought home the 2018 Peewee C Division Provincial Championship banner.
The Alberta Lacrosse Association Minor Box Provincials and David Fehr Classic Tyke &Novice Festival were held July 12-15 in Calgary.
“The kids played their hearts out and did a phenomenal job,” said peewee assistant coach and Vermilion Roar Lacrosse Association president Ryan Adams, “We couldn’t be prouder of them and how they did this season. Going to an event like this is a great experience for the kids. The competition is fierce, and they got to play some really strong teams. We also got to watch some amazing games, cheer on our girl's teams, and really bond as a team. Next year is going to be amazing!”
Lacrosse runs from April - June, and registration is online.
“All the games were exciting, but the gold medal game against Innisfail was fast-paced and intense. Our goalie Regan Sargeant and their goalie worked hard the whole game,” says peewee head coach Travis Stachniak, “Winning the provincials with a score of 7 - 4 was great. It was close the whole way through. I’m really proud of how these 15 kids played. We are all really excited to see that banner up in the Vermilion Stadium.”
Team staff included assistant coaches Chris Wilson and Marc Languin and manager Diane Harms. The team will be showing off their trophy at the 2018 Vermilion Fair Parade!
