Best of lacrosse celebrated by Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association

The Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association presented its annual awards last weekend, recognizing some of the most impressive young box lacrosse players in the region.

Honoured as the Most Inspirational Players for each of the seven teams were:

Novice Inter: Josh Macdonald

Peewee C: Matthew Currie

Peewee A: Brandon Carlson

Bantam C: Liam Bell

Bantam B: Miles Brooks

Bantam A: Isaac Tonkin-Palmer

Midget C: Shylo Gibbs

Midget B: Jaeden Ashbee

Midget A: Brian Robb

Mat Jung, also of the midget A Thunder, was recognized as the Top Graduating Midget Player for the association, which was no surprise as he had already received the same award for all of B.C. The referees of the year were Brayden Zunti (junior) and Taylor Quaife (senior), and Bill Sanderson (bantam C) and Dale Nordstrom (bantam A) were recognized as recreational and competitive coaches of the year, respectively.

At the B.C. Lacrosse Association’s annual general meeting a week earlier, the CVLA’s Sue Lidstone received the President’s Award, and Cowichan junior B and intermediate B coach Lorne Winship was recognized with the John Cavallin Award for Senior Box Coach of the Year.
